Medieval Avranches Tower for Crossbows, Dover Castle, Kent, UK

A view of Avranches Tower on the first corner where the Eastern Outer Curtain Wall of Dover Castle briefly changes direction before continuing on its way to the cliff edge.

The photo was taken looking in a easterly direction and is the first one of this tower to have been uploaded. Subsequent photos will show one of the 'triple loops' referred to in the historical notes at the link below.

Alt. Averanche's Tower, Averenche's Tower, Maunsel's Tower, Maunsell's Tower.
