Newport Tower architecture
- Thanks to Susan for inviting me to join your group!
I came across some interesting photos from Tim Wallace-
Murphy's "Templars in America" book (co-written with Marilyn
Hopkins). In it, he shows photos of the stonework at Eine Hallow,
Orkney (Scotland) that is remarkably similar to that at the Newport
Tower (see pages 163-165):
This similarity takes on added importance when coupled with the fact
that Prince Henry Sinclair resided in Orkney.
I have seen other architectural comparisons linking the Tower to
Scotland, but for me these photos are very telling.
