Yarmouth Castle was built in 1547. Until the building of the castle, regular raids on the island by the French continued. It is effectively a gun platform built by Henry VIII to strengthen the Solent and protect the Isle of Wight, historically an important strategical foothold for any attempted invasion of England.
