Ruins of Mote's Bulwark Gatehouse on the White Cliffs below Dover Castle, Kent, UK.
The Mote, or Moat's Bulwark coastal artillery battery: semi-circular lower level/platform and upper level terrace with West Gatehouse or Guardroon.
Built by King Henry VIII on the cliff-face below Dover Castle in 1539. He also built Black Bulwark and Archcliffe Fort (Archcliffe Bulwark).
A 16th century plan depicts Mote's Bulwark as a timber revetted platform approached by tunnels in the cliff, although it was remodelled as a large semi-circular battery in around 1750.
