TM3541 : Martello Tower with modern roof room

taken 4 years ago, near to Bawdsey, Suffolk, Great Britain

Martello Tower with modern roof room
Martello Tower with modern roof room
This tower has had a largely glass room added to the top.
Not the most convenient location to live - a very long way from a paved road.

The anti-flooding embankment also acts as a footpath, though at the time of writing (February 2015) this is partly closed due to coastal protection works further south.

I believe this is tower X, and if I am right then the Geograph article on the towers is very wrong in stating that this was demolished long ago.
