Jaywick, Essex Giclée Travel Poster
Giclée travel poster of Jaywick Martello Tower in Jaywick, near Clacton-on-Sea in Essex. One of 29 Martello Towers built along the East Anglia coastline between 1809 and 1812, Jaywick Martello Tower was intended to protect Britain against Napoleon, who was feared to be planning on landing in Essex. With walls 33 feet high and up to 10 feet thick in places, and mounting three cannons facing out into the North Sea, the tower would have been a fearsome prospect for any would-be invaders.
Today, Jaywick Martello Tower serves Jaywick not as a fortification, but as an arts, heritage and community venue. The tower hosts a museum and periodic exhibitions, while from the roof, visitors can enjoy beautiful views out over Jaywick Sands, St Osyth Beach, and the sea.
