This tower sits next to the Saxon cemetery, at the top of the covered staircase. It has been restored to make into a modern home, used by the cemetery keeper, but remains an attractive building.

A very old tower on top of the hill. Someone is still living there now as my guide told us. It would be great if we can check the interior, however it's not opened to public.
