Fenton Tower (Doddington)

The site of a tower built shortly before 1415 with a barmkin. Described as in a state of disrepair in 1541, it was abandoned in 1603 and dismantled, but its foundations were still visible in about 1889. The exact site is now unknown but a field called Tower Close may be a clue. Nothing now survives above ground.
