Fox Tower, 14th May 2014

A view of the tower from the plateau behind it with the Eden Valley behind. Although the tower has some resemblance to an old mine it is a folly, built in the 1770s by the owner of the Helbeck Estate, John Metcalf Carleton. It appears to have been used for picnic parties and for admiring the views.
