Door in base and door, small 1 light openings and tiny slits above. Generally said locally to be a lock-up but as there is a pair at opposite ends of site of Old Swithland Hall, it is more likely that they are folly boundary towers or gazebos. Two granite and slate rubble stone walls c3m high extend from gazebo at right angles to each other to stable (listed separately) and barn of 1750 (listed separately). Attached to wall near this barn is an outhouse with brick piers and Swithland slate roof.
