Description

Join us for our second investigation of Martello Tower F where running footsteps are regularly heard when the tower is empty.

The tower, which is Grade II listed, has been standing tall for over 200 years & is accessed via the original cast iron footbridge over a dry moat & overlooking the promenade of Clacton seafront, to the west of the pier. The tower is the only remaining moated example on the Essex coast.

Situated at junction of Marine Parade & Tower Road, the tower is one of 29 Martello Towers built between 1808 & 1812 on the East coast between St Osyth in Essex & Aldeburgh in Suffolk, as small coastal artillery forts to defend England against the threat of invasion. Some are still standing but many have been demolished or destroyed by coastal erosion in the 19th century. As with all the Essex Martello Towers, tower F was armed & provisioned but not garrisoned after its completion. In 1888 the roof came into use as a coastguard look out. In World War I the tower was commandeered as a piquet station for G Company of the 8th Battalion Essex Regiment.

The tower then came into the hands of the local authority & in 1931 the interior was opened as a museum. This didn’t last long as the tower was then returned to military control during World War II and then leased to the Ministry of Defence. The interior remained in use by the Royal Naval Auxiliary Service until 1990.

The tower has also been used as a petting zoo & restaurant.
