The Castle Inn

The Castle Inn, also known as The Round Tower, or Radway Tower, lies on the summit of Edgehill, some 700ft above sea level. Although its postal address is Banbury, Oxfordshire, the village of Edgehill actually nestles about a mile inside the Warwickshire border.

The octagonal tower was started in 1742 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Edgehill and was opened on 3rd September, 1750, the anniversary of Oliver Cromwell's death. It was built by Sanderson Miller, or Millar, who lived in nearby Radway. Miller made a name for himself as a folly builder.
