The historic tower located on the A556 was demolished by a car that drove directly into it on November 14th.

There are already talks of a new structure being built in its place to resemble the old demolished structure and surveyors have already been on site to observe and plan for a new build.

The round tower was a listed building that was built in the 1800’s. The tower was all that survived of a gate lodge to the house of Vale Royal Abbey.

The 50-year-old woman driving the Vauxhall Corsa that struck the tower was taken to Leighton hospital and treated for minor injuries.

Nearby Hartford resident Andy Jones said: “It’s a sad shame. The tower is greatly missed by many. I’m hoping a new tower can be built in its place.”
