Tower on the Moor, The Broadway
Tower on the Moor, The Broadway, Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire LN10 6PU
The brick structure known as the Tower on the Moor is the standing remains of a medieval fortified hunting lodge, comprising its stair turret and a small section of adjacent walling. The tower is about 20 meters high and 3.5 meters in diameter. Excavation of buried remains in 1969 showed that the building was approximately 9 meters squared with the octagonal stair tower projecting from the north west corner. The building appears to have been an architectural precursor to the nearby and better preserved Hussey Tower and Rochford Tower in Boston, Lincolnshire. It is thought to have been constructed for Ralph Lord Cornwall of nearby Tattershall Castle, sometime between 1440 and 1456.
