Appley Tower

SZ 6092 3/127


Early to mid C19. Situated on seashore to the East of the Esplanade and
originally part of the Appley Towers estate. Fairly squat tower of coursed
rubble with ashlar dressings. Splayed base, machicollation and crenellated
parapet, corbelled turret with slit lights. Two light casements to East and
West with cusped ogee shaped arches to light, in rectangular rusticated ashlar
surrounds, drip moulds over. Towards the sea, a rectangular stone bay window
with inclined face, on stone brackets. Three lights to front, 1 each side,
transomed, 4 centred arches to lights. Hipped tiled roof over with overhanging
bracketed eaves. Stone steps with rubble parapet curve up from East side to a
small terrace in front of rectangular entrance bay facing South. Four centred
arch to blocked door in ashlar surround. Above on wall a plaque with the
Appley Arms. Below terrace, on ground floor, another 4 centred doorway in
plain ashlar surround. Curiosity value.
