The tower is now the oldest building in the village and was part of a church built in the late 15th Century on the site of an earlier one... There are no records relating to the tower's construction but permission would have been needed from the king. The land was owned by the Church.
There have been many churches on this elevated site but only the tower remains. Its tendency to lean has earned it the title the "Leaning Tower of South Cheshire" or in earlier days the "Hanging Steeple of Wimberie".
Wybunbury Tower, or the “The Hanging Steeple of Wimberie” is a 15th century church tower saved from demolition in the 1980’s by a dedicated group of villagers now known as the Wybunbury Tower Preservation trust.
