    Cliffe fort was constructed in the mid 19th Century as part of the defence of the Thames against invasion. It is noteable as one of the launch sites of the Brennan Torpedo, which was a pioneering guided weapons system - you can still see the remains of the torpedo installation.

    The fort was added to in WW2 when observation towers were constructed, and anti aircraft guns were mounted within the fort. It was decomissioned shortly after the war. It is now owned by Robert Brett and sons, and stands derelict and decaying beside their gravel works.
