The round tower from the southeast.


In the graveyard of the Presbyterian church of Drumbo there are the remains of a round tower. The stump is about 11 metres tall. The diameter of the tower is about 4.5 metres. On the east side, at 1.5 metres from the ground, there's the doorway and from there it's possible to peep inside. The ground inside the tower is covered with garbage, empty bottles and soda cans.
The tower has wider base and top than the central part, and looks like a power station cooling tower. It is likely that the top section was badly rebuilt and the diameter at that height was miscalculated.
