during Lord Palmerston's 2nd Ministry, at the time of a scare about possible war
with France. Eastern part now (1974) demolished and all other earthworks except
south facing curtain wall were levelled by road works for the M27 motorway. Built
within the hillside with a pointed, or tooth-shaped projection in the centre.
Faced with red brick. An earth band above with stone coping. The flanking portions
have a castellated parapet. Beyond, are plain blank portions each containing a
round-headed "Norman" doorway with flanking stone columns (1 missing) and stone
soffit and dripstone above. Flat arched and segmental arched windows.
