FORT BROCKHURST, HAMPSHIRE, ENGLAND

Client: English Heritage

Fort Brockhurst, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, is a well-preserved artillery fortification of 1858-62, which formed part of the Gosport Advanced Line of defence of the royal navy dockyards at Portsmouth. In plan Fort Brockhurst is a six-sided polygon detached bastion, with an obtuse salient designed to protect the long faces of the fort against enfilade fire. Surrounding the fort is a wet moat; rising from this is an earthwork rampart fronted by a low brick revetment.
