Details

1. 5281 CASTIE ROAD (South Side) SANDGATE Sandgate Castle TR 2035 SE 7/20 5.12.49. GV 2. In private ownership. Built in 1539-1540 at the same time and as part of the same series of defences as Sandown, Deal and Walmer Castles, but altered again for defence purposes in 1805. It originally comprised a large central tower surrounded by 3 smaller towers connected with each other by a curtain wall and covered galleries, with an outer curtain wall and gate-tower on the north and a rectangular building connecting the latter to the central tower. In 1805 the tops of the towers were removed (the central tower being converted into a Martello tower) and the materials used to fill up the space between tile inner and outer walls. Most of the outer wall is missing on the south side, presumably destroyed during the 1939-45 war, and modern pill-boxes have been constructed in the place of part of it. AM.

No 2, Sandgate Castle, The Hermitage, York Cottage, Gatepieris to the White Lodge form a group with Nos 12 to 16 (even) and Gatepiers to Nos 12 to 16 (even). (No 2 and Nos 12 to 16 (even) and Gatepiers to Nos 12 to 16 (even) being buildings of local interest.
