East Coast Martello Towers
Towers U and W
This view of Tower U was taken on a very blustery day and we had to quickly recover the kite as the wind rapidly strengthened. We will try again when next at Felixstowe Ferry Suffolk.

I have been wanting to photograph this tower for some time, its precarious position and the rate of coastal erosion here means it may not be here much longer.
The advancing cliff edge can be seen in the foreground of this image. Tower Y further along the coast can be seen in the background of the images.
