Martello Tower. Circa 1808-1812. Vari-coloured brick, some plaster remains.
Bricks made at Grays, Essex. Stone parapet. Rusticated stone dressings to 4
windows and a door at half height. Built at an approximate cost of £5,000 the
garrison was stationed at Weeley Barracks due to the unhealthiness of the coast.
The Tower guarded a sluice, which, in case of invasion, could be opened up to
flood the surrounding marshes. Kenneth Walker, History of Clacton 1966.
