The tower is connected to an Elizabethan Manor built by Thomas Darrell in the late 16th cent. He had most of the medieval castle pulled down but when he built the new house he attached it to the surviving tower.
It is a beautiful place to walk around as the large moat reflects the old stone buildings and the gardens.
Old stone steps leading to the tower.
In 1778 the Hussey family bought Scotney from the Durrells and around 1830 built a Victorian mansion at the top of the hill. In my next post I will take you with me up the steps and through the gardens to the house at the top of the hill.
