Lewin’s Tower or Folly – East Baldwin

High up in the hills above East Baldwin lies this derelict round stone tower which was once a regular visiting place for nearby eccentric farmer Joe Lewin, Joe built this tower on his highest land and it gave him a grand view from East Baldwin through to Douglas, legend has it that Mr Lewin used to regularly climb to the top of the tower to be closer to God!
