This was built in 1910 for Lord Leverhulme as part of his vast ornamental gardens on the side of Rivington Pike.
It is built in gritstone and is four storeys high each storey having a single room accessed by a semicircular stair turret on the West side.
The lowest level is the entrance which is cut into the hillside, the first and second floors were dovecote's each having light chamfered mullion windows and dove holes in the external wall with landing places for the birds.
The third floor was designed as a sitting room and has windows on the North & South sides, it is said that Lady Leverhulme used this floor as a sewing room.
The tower fell into disrepair in the 1970's but was repaired in the 1980's.
