At the northern end of Portsmouth cove, a castle that is almost entirely surrounded by the sea. The first stage of its construction was undertaken in the late 3C, during the Romans. The walls still stand, although the fort was used by the Saxons in the 5 and 6C before becoming a medieval castle in the early 12C under the reign of Henry I.
