Evening Star - Martello tower to be tourist attraction

After my rant at the last meeting I thought you might all be interested to read this.

Evening Star - Martello tower to be tourist attraction:

"ARTS and heritage experts are to gather in Felixstowe for a brainstorming session to look at turning an historic Napoleonic fort into a million pound-plus attraction for visitors and residents.

The “scoping day” is to take place on Friday and will look at a wide range of ideas for the Martello Tower on the resort's south seafront.

The area around the 19th century fort is to be turned into a maritime park with some housing, but councillors believe the tower could be turned into a prestigious arts centre for the resort."
