EDITORS COMMENTS
This cut-away reconstruction drawing by Chris Evans, created in 1997 for Historic England, offers a unique glimpse into the internal arrangement of a typical two-storey Martello tower along the south coast during the early 19th century. The Martello towers, named after the Duke of Marello who inspired their design following the invasion scare of 1805, were built as part of a defensive line against potential enemy attacks. The graphic illustration showcases the tower's intricate layout, revealing the various functional spaces within its walls. At the ground floor, a large magazine stores ammunition, while a well and a bakehouse cater to the soldiers' essential needs. The first floor houses a barrack room, a gun platform, and a sentry box. The tower's design ensured that every soldier could effectively defend the structure, making it an essential component of the Georgian coastal defence system. The external scene depicted in the drawing adds an authentic touch to the illustration, with soldiers drilling outside the tower. This military training was a crucial aspect of maintaining readiness and discipline among the garrison. The Martello tower, with its imposing presence and strategic importance, stands as a testament to the era's military prowess and architectural innovation. Chris Evans' illustration masterfully captures the essence of this iconic coastal fortification, providing a valuable insight into the history of coastal defence during the Georgian period.
