The Bourbon Tower
Cylindrical tower of ironstone circa 1741 probably by Gibbs. Small round
arched windows and machicolated parapet, surmounted by octagonal turret,
apparently replacing original conical roof. Known as the Keepers Lodge,
but altered and renamed in honour of a visit by the exiled Louis XVIII
in 1808. Ramparts dated 1814.
