Martello Tower

Built in 1806 to defend against invasion by Napolean's army. This decaying building is very sad. It needs money and much care to save it.

We have an excellent one in Sydney Harbour at Fort Dennison. I also found one in good repair at Flic en Flac, Mauritius last year. There is a very poor one in the Scilly Isles.

Yes, it is very sad.
Can we do anything about it?
