A very interesting poem to me as I lived many years on the SE coast,
between Hythe and Dover. The official residence of the Lord Warden has been
Walmer Castle which perhaps is the black tower referred to in the poem.
Sir Winston Churchill was appointed Lord Warden in 1941, but he never
stayed in residence during the war as it was within range of the German
guns situated on the Pas de Calais. I wonder how or when Longfellow visited
as he seems to know the area well.
