310A The Redoubt Fortress Eastbourne,
310A The redoubt fortress Eastbourne, The Redoubt was built between 1804 and 1810 to support the associated Martello towers in defending against the threat of an invasion by Napoleon. It has defended the Eastbourne coast for nearly 200 years. Like its twin Dymchurch Redoubt it was built as a barracks and supply depot for the towers, and designed for 11 guns, although only 10 guns were installed. During the First World War the military police used the Redoubt as a headquarters and temporary jail. Following this, Eastbourne Borough Council purchased the Redoubt for £150 with the plan to turn it into a venue for leisure activities. During the Second World War army requisitioned the building to use for storage. Canadian troops also spent time there in the build up to the D-Day landings.
