Abstract:
Addyman Archaeology were commissioned by the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) Partnership to undertake archaeological monitoring during restoration works and compile a standing building record of Ninebanks Tower, Ninebanks, Northumberland. The Tower, though only a surviving fragment of a much larger building, is itself a complex structure displaying a number of different phases of work. Ninebanks Tower originally stood at the SE angle of the former building, but today is abutted on its N side by the first of a row of later 19th century cottages. The project successfully completed a new drawn record of the tower with its phasing mostly disentangled. In summary three principal episodes of early construction are represented. The earliest appears to be part of the E gable wall of a two-storied structure now incorporated into the W side of the tower, of probable late medieval date. To this was added the tower itself, of which the lower two stories remain of c.1500. Further works saw the addition of the existing upper stage of the tower and an associated stone turnpike stair to its NW, at the junction of the tower with a new range extending to the N, perhaps of the mid-late 16th century. Of the latter parts of ground and first floor windows in its eastern elevation can be seen where the later cottage now abuts. Evidently following the demolition of remainder of the building the western side of the now-freestanding tower saw considerable re-facing and making good.
