    Well I was down south for the day to look at Portsmouth Uni with a friend so we decided to check out a couple of abandoned places before we headed home. Unfortunately the open day we went to ended quite late, as we arrived at the Fort it was getting dark so I couldn't get any decent photos. I recorded as much as I could though.

    "Built on the site of the earlier Fort Monckton Auxiliary Battery, Fort Gilkicker was constructed to defend the deepwater anchorage at Stokes Bay.

    Commenced in 1863, completed in 1871, it consisted of twenty-two gun emplacements in a semi-circular series of granite-faced casemates designed to sweep the approaches to Portsmouth harbour with devastating gun fire." Quote: https://www.fortgilkicker.co.uk/
