Round Tower

Just what it sounds like - a church tower built with a round, rather than the more common square or rectangular layout. Round towers are most common in East Anglia, with over 90 percent of British round tower churches located in Suffolk and Norfolk. Round towers are most often built with flint infill, rather than stone, though some exhibit a chequerboard mix of building materials.
