Radcliffe Tower is the only surviving part of a manor house in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester (historically in Lancashire). It is a Grade I listed building and a Scheduled Monument. The house was rebuilt in 1403 by James de Radcliffe, who was lord of the manor of Radcliffe, and consisted of a stone-built hall and one or two towers, probably built with ashlar blocks. De Radcliffe was given a royal licence to fortify the site including adding crenellations and battlements.
The manor house was demolished in the 19th century leaving only the tower. The tower measures 10.5 yards (9.6 m) by 19 yards (17 m) and survives to about 20 feet (6.1 m) in height. The remains are owned by Bury council. It was used as a pig sty before being restored. Radcliffe Tower is about 3.3 kilometres (2.1 mi) south of Bury Castle, a late 15th-century moated manor house.

Gorgeous little hidden secret in Radcliffe! I stumbled across this one winters day and instantly fell in love. I had the area all to myself so it was quiet and serene. The area looked well taken care of with minimal signs of damage (you see too much these days) Information boards were dotted around for your browsing. Only downside for me, as a photographer; not being able to go inside. Love it though.
