Camber  Sussex

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Camber like this:

CAMBER-CASTLE, a ruined fortalice on the coast of Sussex; nearly midway between Winchelsea and Rye. It was one of the strengths built by Henry VIII., for defence of the coast; was dismantled in 1642; and has a central tower, surmounted by smaller ones, with connecting curtains. The sea once washed its walls; but has considerably receded.
