The upper section is an 18th-century addition – the lower section was originally topped with a spire which came down in a storm in 1740 – but the extended tower still provides a graceful focal point to the building. Uffington is unusual in having an octagonal tower. This room, part of the original medieval house, is accessed by the outer stairs between the main hall and the south tower.
