    It was poring with rain and freezing cold so we decided to go for a wander on the hills surrounding Dover:rolleyes:

    Fort Burgoyne is one of the Palmerston forts built around Dover in the 1860's. This site was used and added to in WW2 with pillboxes and gun emplacements. The two Wing Batteries are littered with slit trenches and mortar emplacements from the same era.

    The fort overlooks Dover Castle and covers a weak spot in the defence of Dover. It's built in similar style to the other forts with a large ditch surrounding a polygonal structure. It has a double caponnier which we couldn't get access to and three more smaller caponniers.

    We managed to see both the Wing Batteries and a large portion of the main site before running into one man and his dog and having to join him in a game of hide and seek.
