The Three Towers
Look out for The Three Towers, three of only four sites in Arnside & Silverdale AONB with substantial stone built remains of medieval domestic buildings.
The use of the term “tower” is a little misleading, as only Arnside Tower is a true tower house. Beetham Hall is a fortified manor house with a hall and solar wing. Hazelslack now stands as a tower-like building but was originally probably part of a larger hall, the foundation outline of which can still be seen at ground level.
The fourth site of medieval interest is Warton Old Rectory, a 14th century dwelling house which was not only a home for the rector of the local church, but was also a manor where courts were held.
