East Coast Martello Towers
Towers Y and Z
Tower Y Bawdsey Suffolk
Pentax Optio 45019th September 06
It appears construction work was going on when we photographed this tower. The tower looks in good condition externally and has a futuristic structure on top. We need a south easterly wind to have the kite fly over the lagoon and be around 50 yards closer.
Tower Z Alderton Suffolk.
Tower Z is obviously in a very poor state of repair and now is a home to Rooks and Pigeons.
This image was captured with the camera being zoomed a little and lifted around 15ft above ground level. The facing brick skin is falling away from the tower in places creating a ledge, a convenient perch for the Pigeons.
