There were two redoubts constructed on the south coast at Dymchurch and Eastbourne. They acted as supply depots for the 74 neighbouring Martello Towers. They were originally described as 'eleven-gun towers'.

Dymchurch Redoubt was built between 1806-1809. During the Second World War additional fortifications were add, with bunkers, pillboxes and gun platforms added to the top.
