The tower is one of Birmingham's oldest surviving architectural features. Built by John Perrott, who lived in Belbroughton, the tower still stands high above the local residential and business housing.

There are many stories to explain why the tower was built. One is that John Perrott wanted to be able to survey his land and perhaps entertain guests. Or the tower might have been used to spot animals for hunting. Or that he built the tower so that he could see his wife's grave, ten miles away.
