This was a lookout and contact point for the local ‘pilots’ who were responsible for the navigation of shipping through the channel but now forms part of the dwelling within.
I digress – there were many watchtowers along the coast to observe any potential attack on England and the building here at Dungeness (now a smart Bed and Breakfast house – see ‘Where to Stay‘) was just one of the many observation posts.
