The Preston pele tower, which is owned by GJ Baker Cresswell, was built between 1392 and 1399. The gardens around the house provide a peaceful and attractive setting for the pele tower. There are three short walks in the grounds and nearby woodland that allow visitors to see some of the interesting trees and shrubs in the grounds, which include tulip trees, walnuts, and a Gingko biloba. The woodland walk will take you through beech woods to a secluded spring. Water is pumped from the spring to a tank in the tower, and thence to the house. Visitors may also catch sight of the wildlife that lives in the grounds and woodland around Preston.
