Description

Wothorpe Towers

The Tower house was built by the Cecils in circa 1600 in the style of a fortified tower as a subsidiary house to their main residence at Burghley . Following the death of Thomas Cecil in 1623 , the house was leased to members of the Cecil family and later to the Second Duke of Buckingham . It was used finally as a Dower House. In the mid-18th century however , Brownlow the 9th Earl decided that the house was no longer required . Some of the stone was removed and re-used in the stables at Burghley House and the cupolas were removed in the mid-19th century . The whole building , including the stables and an octagonal cockpit , have been allowed to fall into disrepair but are currently under restoration .
