Camber Castle, East Sussex, in the background.
Camber Castle was built between 1512 and 1514 to defend the important anchorage of Rye Harbour. However the coastal currents caused such a rapid build-up of silt that within a hundred years the coastline had receded so far south that enemy vessels were beyond range of the castle's artillery and the castle was abandoned in 1637.
Footnote for the Rustographer in Chief:
I apologise for the inclusion of so much Kentish Fluffy White Rust but as it was the mobile version it kept wandering across the field of vision. In accordance with Rule number 1 of the R.A.S. ("Thou shalt not clone out the grot") it has to remain.
