Did you know?

Finsthwaite Tower was erected by the owner of Finsthwaite House in 1799 to mark four significant naval victories, commemorating the 'matchless conduct and irresistible valour' of the men of the Royal Navy. The tower used to have an extra storey of height until the early 20th century when it was shortened for safety reasons.
