TR2336 : Folkestone, Martello Tower No. 2

taken 7 years ago, near to Folkestone, Kent, Great Britain

Folkestone, Martello Tower No. 2
Folkestone, Martello Tower No. 2
Martello Tower No. 2 is about 50 feet lower than No. 1, and sited on a small knoll slightly further inland, where Wear Bay Road is now situated. The tower was converted into a house with a full roof, similar to that on Tower 8. Extra windows have been added and the exterior coated with a coloured lime rendering. Surrounded by tall trees and situated up a private track, the tower is really only visible from a high position, such as the roof of Tower 3.
