Yarmouth Castle

Yarmouth Castle is a square with sides of nearly 100ft (30m) and a sharply pointed bastion or flanker at the southeast corner. It differs radically from all the earlier Henry VIII forts, large and small, which have semicircular bastions fronting a higher, central tower. The north and west walls are washed by the sea; the south and east walls were originally flanked by a moat 30ft (9m) wide, terminated by continuations of the north and west walls, in which there were sluices.
