Cresswell Pele Tower
Heritage Open Day: This is a rare chance to brave the stumble stairs and view the expansive Druridge Bay from the ramparts of a 14th Century Pele Tower, in the company of our resident ghost, the White Lady. The tower was built in the 15th Century by the Cresswell family. It is one of around 175 such structures which were built at this time in Northumberland. Many of these are lost or in considerable states of ruin. The towers were very necessary and built in response to the raids of the Border Reivers. These lawless clans from both sides of the Anglo-Scottish borders survived by raiding and marauding. Cattle rustling was common. The Reivers were not driven by allegiance to either the Scottish or English crowns.
