This is a reconstruction drawing of Ashton's Tower in the mid 14th century by Peter Dunn. Ashton's Tower was begun by a constable of that name who served there between 1376 and 1381. A building account records that the tower was completed in 1385. The chambers (rooms) within the tower served as an extension to the constable's residence.
