Day 184, of my 2016 sketch a day challenge

Single Street Martello tower sketch

This Martello sketch sits exactly between the one at shingle street and Bawdsey at Alderton and is a grade II listed building. It is an uninhabited tower. It is interesting as it is the site of two war defences, the first is the Martello tower itself which was constructed in early 19th century and had a WWII pill box added to the roof. It has remained empty since the end of WWII.
