A quote from Matthew Emmott
Arnside Tower stands tall and majestic on the hill side overlooking the farm below it. Again, it's a huge structure, originally a five or six storey tower dating from around the 15th century. Arnside tower is interesting in one exceptional way and that is that it forms part of a defensive ring around the Morecambe Bay area. The other towers are at Hazelslack, another 14th century pele tower, Wraysholme tower in Allithwaite near Grange, a 15th century pele tower, and Beetham. All these towers are in pretty good condition considering their ages, although Arnside tower appears to have suffered some storm damage in the 1800s.
