The creation of the Sandown, Deal and Walmer Castles was accompanied by four blockhouses at strategic intervals between them plus a defensive ditch. A description and locations of the works feature in "Deal to Walmer, the castles, earthworks and bulwarks of the Downs, 1538-1540" by Jenny Wall (final version 2019).

The Wikipedia on-line encyclopaedia has a History of the Cinque Ports and a detailed history of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports.
