September 2015: Heritage open days

We’re currently aiming to complete the project in late 2015, but the site will be open to the public on National Heritage Open Days weekend (12th Sept). By then we will have carried out landscape improvements to the Tower site and created a link from Close Park.


Tours will start the entrance to Close Park at 11 a.m, 12 noon, 1 p.m and 2 p.m.

March 2015: Tower repairs begin

Work began on 2nd March on the consolidation and re-pointing of the remains of the de Radclyffe’s pele tower. The £64,000 job will take three months and is being carried out by Bullen Conservation, with design and supervision by Manchester firm of architects, Lloyd Evans Prichard.
