"Martello Towers were built to combat an invasion from Napoleon. This one at Felixstowe is around 30ft high with concrete walls 13ft thick, virtually impregnable. Gund could be placed on top and they housed around 20 men. They were also used during both World Wars as lookout and communication points and some were even used during the recent Cold War as nuclear bunkers". Jack Russell MBE
