The construction of this fortress was completed in 1545, according to the instructions of King Henry VIII. And it follows the ‘clover leaf’ design. Lucky for some. The fortress made up part of the King’s Device plan. King Henry wanted to prevent or to protect his land against invasion from France and the Holly Roman Empire. The fortifications were bolstered with cannon and gun posts. The building also happens to stand in a lovely part of the land, by the coast, overlooking the waves. It has also been reported to contain be the most elaborate décor of all of the castles built by Henry.
