The Martello towers are a feature of many seaside towns in Sussex and Kent, and are in themselves interesting historical buildings.
The Wish Tower has had a chequered recent history, but currently offers the chance to have a free tour of a building that is in desperate need of restoration.
The tour itself is run by volunteers who are doing a fantastic job in publicising the fact that they are trying to bring this important buidling back to life.
The interior offers a fascinating glimpse of life in the Napoleonic years, with 20 odd soldiers living in a space we would think fit as a master bedroom.
The views from the roof are stunning, and it is clear to see why these towers were such a good idea.
I will definitely return, and if there is anything I can do to assist the gradual restoration process, then I will gladly help out.
An hour very well spent!
