The Martello Tower
The Martellos were the projects supported by those members of parliament who doubted the Duke of Wellington and the ability of the British to wage a land war against the French.
This Martello (tower CC) is essentially four towers joined together and dominates a narrow spit of land just a short walk along the coast between the sea and the river Alde. Two Martellos used to flank the Deben estuary but the tower on the north bank has been destroyed; the south bank tower remains in fantastic condition however and has been converted into a house.
