English Heritage owns the tower and is therefore responsible for its upkeep and maintenance. They have undertaken a number of surveys in 2018 to determine the source of the water ingress and this has resulted in firm plans to undertake repair work on the tower in 2019.
Details of the Proposed Works
At the moment, it is planned to re-start the public openings from Saturday 6 April 2019. The tower will then need to be closed to the public to allow the proposed repair works to address the water ingress problems, likely to be to be undertaken in May, June & July 2019, aiming to re-open mid-July ready for the school holidays. There may be scope to open for some days during this period.
