    This is my first contri, so be kind!!! :thumb

    This is bembridge hill fort - a well hidden fortification on culver down, isle of wight. There are two fortifications on Culver down - this hill fort, and the Gun battery on the cliff edge. Legend has it that if both weapons on the gun battery were fired simultaneously, the cliff would have collapsed... :eek: Good to see that planning departments of the government were as well informed then as they are now...

    I visited Bembridge hill fort - it is more interesting and infinatly more difficult to get to (the gun battery is a drive up and park inside it jobbie). There have been various businesses within the courtyard of the complex, and as you can see.. a few failures. We got in to the actual fortifications which were very interesting as you will see...


    This is the Courtyard area...


    view from the top area, loads of little buildings - some with some interesting bits of rusting metal inside


    This is the surrounding moat - we went in to that large jutting wing


    This is looking inside the wing - loads of rubbish down there, not much left of the original floor either.


    We found this little room - full of papers that were rotting away, obviously left after the company ran out of luck. loads of other rooms with conference facilities (all totally ruined by time and mould)


    finally - a great view from up there. 360 Degree views of some of the finest countryside around..

    Great visit - be good to see the place opened up!!
