Hackness Martello Tower
The Hackness Martello tower, together with another on the north side at Crockness, was built in 1815. Visitors can tour the tower, battery and reconstructed barracks.
The towers were located to provide protection for British ships in the bay of Longhope against attack by American and French privateers, during the Napoleonic Wars. The towers were upgraded, with the installation of new guns and other structures, in 1866 at a time of concern about the possibility of another French invasion.
