Elsdon

Elsdon Tower is a medieval tower house in the village of Elsdon, about 16 km southwest of Rothbury in the English county of Northumberland. The tower, which was converted into a rectory, was listed by English Heritage as a Grade I Historic Building. The property was first mentioned in 1415 as Vicars Pele, a Peel Tower, which was inhabited by the pastor of Elsdon, documented. The residential tower, which originally had four floors, was reduced to three storeys in the 17th century and received a pitched roof and a crenellated parapet. At the beginning of the 19th century, Archdeacon Singleton had an entrance hall and a two-story extension with two bays built. The house was used until 1960 as a rectory. In the 1990s it was completely renovated and refurbished. The nearby medieval moth, which was probably built by Robert de Umfraville, is called Elsdon Castle.
