Sandiway's Round Tower Restored

Home » Newsroom » Sandiway's Round Tower Restored

Sandiway's historic Round Tower is once again standing proud on its original roadside site and an event has been planned to celebrate with local residents.

The Tower, a former gate lodge to Vale Royal Abbey, was dismantled after being hit by a car in 2013, but now its sandstone looks as fresh as it did when it was built in the early years of the 19th century.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at the Round Tower on Monday, 27 July at 10.30am. A viewing area on Norley Road will be in place for the local community to view the celebration, opposite the tower.

The following roads will be closed between 10am and 11am to allow the event to take place safely:

For Eastbound traffic, full closure of the A556 eastbound with a signed diversion via the A49 and A559
Closure of Norley Road
For westbound traffic, a lane closure on lane two (the fast lane) from a safe point near to the entrance to Sandiway Golf Club

Local Councillor Charles Fifield said: "I am delighted that the Round Tower is part of our local landscape once again. We have all watched with interest as the giant 'jigsaw' of our beloved Tower has been pieced together stone by stone. It now looks wonderful and we wanted to mark the completion of the project in some way.

"The celebration event will involve a ribbon cutting ceremony with local dignitaries and children from our local schools."
