We spent last week in the Landmark Trust’s Martello Tower, Aldeburgh, Suffolk.

A spectacular week with incredible weather.

‘This is the largest and most northerly of the chain of towers put up by the Board of Ordnance to keep out Napoleon. Built in the shape of a quatrefoil for four heavy guns, nearly a million bricks were used in its construction.

It stands at the root of the Orford Ness peninsula, between the River Alde and the sea, a few hundred yards from Aldeburgh. Here you live with the sea, the wind and rain sometimes, and Aldeburgh at just the right distance’
