Appley Tower

Appley Tower is a folly built on the sea frontage of the Appley Towers estate, east of Ryde, Isle of Wight.

The tower was built in 1875 for Sir William Hutt, then owner of the estate, by local builder Isaac Barton to the design of local architect Thomas Hellyer.

The tower was acquired by Ryde Borough Council after World War Two. Today (2020) Appley Tower is owned by the Isle of Wight Council.
