This is no ordinary tower….

Tucked away on the west side of our (extended) Seaton Park map is a small but venerable building currently on the At Risk register, the neglected Wallace Tower. Originally built in 1600’s it was moved and rebuilt stone by stone to make way for M&S in the 60’s.

Since then it’s struggled to find a role, apart from being a control site now and then, but there are plans afoot to refurb it and add a modern extension out the back to house a cafe-cum-community space. Tillydrone Community Development Trust have just approved plans from TINTO architects who will now submit them to Aberdeen Council.

Watch this space….
