Chesterton Tower, Chapel Street
History of Chesterton Tower
Royal Commission Survey of Cambridge 1959: house, standing in the Vicarage garden 177 yds N of the parish church, is of two storeys with walls of rubble patched with brick and with clutch and Kenton stone ashlar dressings; the roofs are tile-covered. It was built about the middle of the 14th century probably for the procurator of the abbot of Vercelli…. the Tower is a rare survival of a dwelling for the representative in England of a foreign appropriator and of much architectural interest despite the recent restoration.
