The Martello Tower at Dymchurch, Romney Marsh, is going to go under the hammer at the Clive Emson auction on Monday, December 11.

The feature has a guide price of between £70,000 to £75,000 - and you won't be short of parking spaces.

The building lies slap bang in the middle of a car park.

Martello Towers were built in the 19th century to protect the British Empire from invasions from across the water.

The small defensive forts were designed to hold 15-25 men and measure around 40ft in height.
