Notes NOTES: Popularly known as the 'Pepper Pot', the original function of Barry's ten-sided tower within the grounds of Thomas Attree's house remains uncertain. Theories suggest it may have originally served as a water tower or simply a viewing point or folly. The house itself later became known as Attree Villa.
