Calshot: the castle and coastguard lookout
Calshot: the castle and coastguard lookout
One of Henry VIII's numerous Solent defences, Calshot Castle occupies a dramatic spot at the end of the spit, alongside the lifeboat station. Next to the lifeboat station, the prominent coastguard lookout was built in 1973 but lay unused for nearly 20 years until it was reopened in 2010.
