St Leonards Tower

History & Heritage See & Do


St Leonard’s Tower was built between 1077 and 1108 by Bishop Gundulf. It probably served as a fortified house, although it is also said to be the tower of the church of St Leonard. Constructed of ragstone, the three storey tower survived the church and is 32 feet (9.8 m) square, and 60 feet (18 m) to 70 feet (21 m) tall, being built into a hillside.
