Situated on a hilltop overlooking the village of Llanarthney in the Towy Valley between Carmarthen and Llandeilo, the tower was built by Sir William Paxton whilst he owned Middleton Hall – now the home of the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
The Tower is a grade 11 listed building and is also known as The Nelson Monument – rumour has it that Paxton was inspired to build the Tower by Nelson’s death at Trafalgar.
Nearby are two places to stop for a meal – The Emlyn Arms or Wrights Food Emporium, both in Llanarthne on the B4300.
