World War II military features are visible surrounding Martello Tower 'P' on aerial photographs taken in 1944, centred on TM 29263302 in Felixstowe. The features include two rectangular concrete buildings measuring 4.5m by 1.5m located at TM 29283311 and TM 29323306. To the south of the Martello Tower rows of small circular mounds appear sometime between July 6th and August 4th 1944. The function of these mounds is unclear. Also to the south of the Martello Tower a length of barbed wire obstruction is visible running from TM 29233302, crossing Manor Road and running parallel with Manor Terrace until it terminates at TM 29163285. Two small slit trenches are also visible close to the barbed wire at TM 29233306 and TM 29233297. (S1) (S2)
