Building: folly


3/4 Tower in Tower Street, Crickhowell, Powys
Long thought a likely town gate tower, this structure has been reassessed as a late 18th- or early 19th-century folly.  Of course, it’s also possible that it was built on the foundations of a medieval gate tower

  1. Some folly’s are quite convincing, and yes it might have been built as a replacement for a tower long gone……also you have to have a tower in Tower Street, wouldn’t be the same with out one 🙂
