Corrin's Tower (aka Corrin's Folly)

Corrin’s Tower, also known as Corrin’s Folly, is a stone tower on Peel Hill overlooking Peel on the Isle of Man’s West coast.  The tower is 50 ft tall and was built around 1806 by Thomas Corrin, who at the time owned much of the land around the hill.

This spot was a favourite of Thomas and his remains along with his wife and two children are buried here. The graveyard is within a walled area nearby.

The tower is built with the corners pointing to the four cardinal points of the compass, the entrance is by a small doorway facing the southeast. An interesting point is that you will see the windows on the eastern side are blocked up, this was because lights from the tower often resulted in it being mistaken for the Peel breakwater lights.

There are many walking options leading up the hill,  with most from the Peel Harbour side, near the bridge across the Marina and the hill can also be accessed from Fenella Beach car park.
