Notes

Martello Tower 'P' built in the early 19th century. The moat has now been filled in and the tower is used as a coastguard station. The enclosure contains a Royal Observor Corps Station as well as earthwork remains of asssociated structures such as the artillery shed, a lifeboat house and an Observation Point.
