    Thanks to Simon for the info and recce.

    Well, a nice new find here, not everyday you find a Palmerston Fort.

    Quite a large place over 3 levels (surface, guns, moat) with a massive set of steps linking them all.

    Well, 200 candles later...

    The stairs...

    There was three flights of stairs, but you could only see two at a time because of the angle.

    The 'gunnery' corridor had four or five gun rooms separated by rooms that could have been magazines...

    It's definitely worth a look, see if it's still occupied by carnies at least.
