HRS 57 Radcliffe Tower arch close up 1969

Stone-arched doorway close up. St Mary's parish church can be seen in the distance.
Radcliffe Tower was built in 1403 by James De Radcliffe. It is pele tower or tower house. On its western side it was attached to a timber-framed Great Hall of which all visible traces have disappeared. The Tower is also associated with various ghosts, and in particular with the ballad of Lady Isabella's tragedy which is a story of cannibalism! SD 795 075 Radcliffe Parish Church is just visible to the right of the image with an unfortunate juxtapositioning of Bealey's bleach works chimney.
