Paull Holme Tower visit

You need to let us know you are coming IN ADVANCE, please!

The 700-year-old Paull Holme Tower was once part of a grand manor house complex and is a Grade 1 listed ancient monument. It was opened to the public for the first time ever in September 2011 and quite simply was a wreck and classed by English Heritage as ‘at risk’ of being lost forever.

However, through the efforts of Simon Taylor, who bought the tower and pledged to do something with it, the monument was saved and funding secured to shore the building up and latterly to construct a new roof and restore the crenelations (battlements).

Hedon Viewfinders members first visited the tower as a club in 2016 before the construction work. This next visit by the club is on Wednesday (10 August 2022) and should allow us to see the work that has been done and afford some rooftop views to those braver members wishing to climb up to the top.

It will be a fascinating visit. However, because it is a very old building (it’s not a refined tourist attraction) then entry to the tower will be at members’ own risk. Should you choose not to enter then there are still some great photography opportunities to be had from the outside.

Members are advised to meet at Paull Holme Strays Nature Reserve car park in time for a 6.45pm short walk to the tower (we will arrange to ferry those to the site who find the 5-minute walk difficult – let us know in advance).

Directions to the Nature Reserve: From the A1033 follow the signs for Fort Paull and then head south on Thorngumbald Road. The entrance to the car park is on the right just less than a mile after St Andrew’s Church. Get there ready to leave for the walk to the tower by 6.45pm, please.

If you are planning to attend, and haven’t informed us already, then please email on viewfinders-ttl@gmx.co.uk or rlduffill@gmail.com to confirm your intention to attend.
