Martello Tower 5
Martello Tower 5
A very rare look at a Martello tower that has not been seen like this for a very long time.
Tower number 5 is in the grounds of the Folkestone school for girls.
For many years this tower has been covered in trees and brambles until recently when the school was given a grant to clear the site. I was told not even the students knew it was there till now.
A big thanks to the school for giving me the opportunity to see it.
