A Structural History of Preston Tower

The ongoing work to preserve future generations is well underway, but the work could not take place without extensive and invaluable research into the building's structural and chronological history.

This structural history was commissioned by Groves-Raines Architects on behalf of East Lothian Council in March 2021. The report is based on onsite observations and background research that was carried out by the author for Bob Marshall who was commissioned to produce interpretative reconstructions on Preston Tower.
