Walmer Castle
Walmer, Kingsdown Road, Walmer Castle.
Walmer Castle was built by Henry VIII in 15391540 as an artillery fortress to counter the threat of invasion from Catholic France and Spain. It was part of his programme to create a chain of coastal defences along England's coast known as the Device Forts or as Henrician Castles. It was one of three forts constructed to defend the Downs, an area of safe anchorage protected by the Goodwin Sands, in Kent, south east England. The other forts were at Deal and Sandown.
The castle is now owned and managed by English Heritage.
