Fox Tower – Brough

This is a folly built by John Metcalf Carleton in 1775 as part of the Georgian Gothic mansion of Helbeck Hall above Brough.  The Tower is on private land within the Warcop danger area but can be seen in the distance. In recent years there have been advertised open weekends in early summer when the public can enjoy the splendid views over the Eden Valley.  You can see the tower disappearing into the surrounding rock from the A66 or Brough Castle.
