The Royal Military Canal, Romney Marsh, Kent
The Royal Military Canal, Romney Marsh, Kent
The Royal Military Canal ran between Hythe and Rye and was completed in 1809. It was built as a defensive line to guard against a threatened invasion by Napoleon. Every five hundred yards there is a kink in the canal, allowing guns mounted on the northern bank to fire along the length of the canal at anyone trying to cross.
