The Yellow Tower gets its name from the colour its stonework appears at sunrise and sunset. At a height of 40 metres it dominates the skyline of Trim and towers above Trim Castle which sits at the base of the hill. Built in the 14th Century it was the Bell Tower and a place of refuge for the Augustinian Abbey of St Mary, it was destroyed in the 17th Century.
This door at the base is almost 1.8m or 6 foot, in the previous picture its on the left bottom corner. That might give an impression of the height of the tower.
