History:
In 1859 the Royal Commission which called for modification across the Western Heights reviewed the unfinished North Centre Bastion. Work began on its completion and the construction of the Detached Bastion and its caponier. They were armed throughout the main phase of occupation at the Western Heights, but along with the rest of the fortress, its decline was rapid and at the turn of the century its guns were removed. The bastions saw very little use after this time, with only local defence use during both World Wars.

This was fun getting in as I’m not the slimmest of people and the entrance didn’t do me any favours! I didn’t get too many photos of this place as I was trying to catch my breath back after climbing in but here they are ,enjoy
