The tower of Llyod is built on commonage just 3km north of Kells county Meath, it was designed by Henry Aaron Baker for the First Earl of Bective in memory of his father Sir Thomas Taylor in 1791. There are different ideas on the purpose, for some it was built as a folly at a time in Ireland to provide money for the people after the first great famine. For others as a look out tower to view the local events, from this point on a clear day you can see the witches peak in Oldcastle to the west , the mountains of Antrim to the North and the hills beside the sea (including Fourknocks passage grave) to the East.
