SANDGATE CASTLE

Built between 1538 and 1540 by Henry VIII, much of the front has since been demolished by the sea. Originally there was a central circular three storey keep surrounded by two walls. In 1806 the keep was lowered and turned into a stone (rather than brick) martello tower, part of the chain between Dymchurch and Folkestone.
