Hackness Battery and Martello Tower guide leaflet
The official visitors guide to Hackness Battery and Martello Tower - English language edition.
This coastal gun battery was built in 1813, when Britain was at war with France and America to protect Longhope Sound for merchant shipping passing. The oval Martello tower was added in 1814. Upgraded in 1866, the defences continued in use until about 1900 and the interiors are well preserved.
