Eastbourne Redoubt, Eastbourne - Eastbourne

A redoubt built as part of the Martello system, 1806. Main parts are in use as a museum. The aquarium building, which occupies casemates and the mast on the south west side, is in very poor condition. The surviving caponiers suffer from water ingress. Moat walls are decaying. A Conservation Plan has been produced and proposals are being developed.
