    The fort was previously called Castle Hill fort and building started in 1861 to protect the landward flank of Dover Castle. The casemated barrack block, the caponiers, the parade ground, the outworks, batteries and flanking galleries were finished in 1864 but in 1869-1870 wing batteries and more battery fortifications were built. During the two world wars, pillboxes, gun eplacements, anti tank emplacements and blast wars were constructed.
    The Fort is the only Royal Commission initiated land fort in Kent.


    The place is huge, much more to see than google earth suggests:D
