Cliffe Fort is on the banks of the River Thames near the village of Cliffe on the Hoo Penninsula.
It was built on the recommendations of the 1859 Royal commission.
It was constructed to prevent an enemy landing on the Hoo peninninsula to outflank the defences of Chatham,and also to work with nearby Shornmead fort and coalhouse fort (on the other side of the Thames in Essex)to prevent an enemy fleet continueing up the river Thames.
It was to be armed with 30 guns manned by 300 men.
