Dating from the fourteenth century, Coxon’s Tower is part of the medieval fortifications started by Edward I in 1296. In the early 16th century, a stone bulwark, serving as a gun platform, was built out from the east casemate. The ravages of the sea and river took their toll, and the bulwark was abandoned in the 17th century. Coxon’s Tower was then later modified by the Georgians.
This year Coxon's Tower hosts Visions of an Island by Sky Hopinka.
