Description
The East Blockhouse is one of a pair of Tudor blockhouses constructed by Henry VIII in the sizteenth century to guard Milford Haven. It is one of a pair of blockhouses protecting the mouth of the haven. It was later adapted for local defence in World War Two when a signed and dated rifle embrasure was cut in the building's east wall (see NPRN270718). It is a roofless ruin, 7.3m north-south by 4.0m, divided into two unequal parts; an enclosure was noted to the north and a second, smaller building to the south-east, however by 1975 cliff errosion had caused t the building's north wall to fall.

Excavated in 2011 by Dyfed Archaeological Trust and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.
