The superb Redoubt Fortress and Royal Parade behind it looking almost exactly the same then as it does now with the sea washing up close to the footpath in front of it.



The Redoubt Fortress was built to deter Napoleon's forces along with the Martello Towers in the early 1800's. The fortress now houses a great museum of the Royal Sussex Regiment.
