Martello Tower No. 3 is one of seventy-four defensive towers built between 1805 and 1808 during the Napoleonic period along the south coast from Folkestone in Kent to Seaford in Sussex. It was later adapted to serve numerous roles during World War II. The tower lies adjacent to the East Cliff and The Warren, internationally renowned for its geology and wildlife. Unfortunately, as of 2004, the tower is no longer open to the public.
