The tower, which is five storeys high, was constructed from the local sandstone and then rendered. It was lived in until the early 20th century but was derelict by the 1930s. It was restored in 1991 by a specialist builder from Burnham-on-Sea called Des Baker. He re-rendered the walls and installed modern conveniences. It was restored again in 2006 and the render was replaced with a breathable traditional lime based render.
