Repentence Tower, Hoddom

© 2016 Penny Humphreys

On Trailtrow hill near Hoddom Castle stands Repentence Tower. Built in the mid-16th century for Sir John Maxwell, the origins of the name Repentence are uncertain.
It may be connected to the building of the tower on the site of Trailtrow Chapel, or is it the tower was built as a sign of remorse resulting from Maxwell's treachery and the loss of life?
