A 15th century Pele tower in the village of Allithwaite. It's in good condition as English Heritage have replaced the roof - it now has a steepled roof, rather than the flat one it originally had - and they have repaired a gable wall that was cracking and falling away from the main body of the tower. One of the spiral staircases still stands. The building is now attached to a farm.
