Folly tower, formerly keeper's house for the salmon coops for Netherby Hall.
Probably mid-C18 for Rev. Robert Graham, with early C19 additions for Sir James
Graham. Red sandstone rubble walls on chamfered plinth, flush quoins, string
course and battlemented parapet. 2 storeys, 3 bays. Central recessed bay is
single storey; pointed-arch doorway with hood mould; cruciform openings,
battlemented parapet. C19 flanking towers have cross-mullioned blocked windows;
similar 2-light mullioned windows above. Single-light windows to rear. Built
on the river bank and all that remains of the salmon coops. Thought to have

belonging to that Priory. The Rev. Robert Graham consulted Mr Howard of Corby
Castle on the laying out of the landscape garden at Netherby. See Country Life,
