the the death of Doctor Syn in 1794, Britain was once again at
war with France. The war lasted until 1815, with a brief period
of peace in 1802-1803. This pause, the Peace of Amiens, separated
the French Revolutionary Wars from the Napoleonic Wars. With the
threat of Napoleon invading our shores a series of fortifications
called Martello Towers were built on the South Coast and also
the East Coast. The 74 South Coast towers stretched from Folkestone
in Kent to Seaford in Sussex and many still stand today.
