Martello Tower No.24
Martello Tower No. 24 in Dymchurch High Street was one of 74 towers built along the south coast between 1805 and 1812 to resist the threatened French invasion. It has been restored to its original design and contains replica gunpowder barrels and a 24 pounder muzzle-loading cannon on the gun platform. Of all the Martello Towers remaining, Martello24 is closest to its original condition and it can been seen as it was when occupied by the military 1806.
The New Hall in Dymchurch dates back to the time when Dymchurch was once the headquarters for law and order on the Marsh; the name Dymchurch derives from Deme, mediaeval English for judge or arbiter. It was here where the governors of the Marsh resided (known as The Lord of the Level).
Ocean View Studio
Helen Gillilan’s Ocean View Studio is open on Friday, Saturday and Sundays and during the week whenever possible. Helen opened her studio at Dungeness in April 2017. Helen says about her work: “Each piece of work is a many layered journey, both regarding how the image develops and where the materials will lead me. I have no pre-conceived ideas about form – it’s a partnership between the materials and myself.
The Old Lighthouse at Dungeness offers unique and perfect views over the 500 cuspate shingle ridges (created primarily by long shore drift) that have formed the foreland, one of the largest in the world and the greatest example in the UK.
