Paull Holme Tower is now a 30ft high, 3 storey ruin. It is all that remains of a 15th century fortified manor house which once had a moat, a portcullis and crenellations. Archaeological evidence, the 1672 hearth tax returns, early 19th century maps and the location of the moat (now filled in) all indicate that this was a much larger house with two towers and a range in-between. Its similarity to Kirby Muxloe Castle and Hussey Tower suggests that it dates from around 1450-1480. The recently formed Paull Holme Preservation Society aims to restore the tower and open it to the public.

The Tower is in private ownership and is currently not open to the public. However, it can be viewed from a public footpath on its south side.
