Fort Hubberstone, on the West side of Milford Haven,(probaly the ruffest part of wales) Pembrokeshire, was started in 1858 just before the Royal Commission on the Defence of the United Kingdom; it was completed in 1863. It is a large battery opposite Popton Fort, with eleven guns in casemates, eight in an open battery above, with another nine in an open flank battery, and a large barracks to the rear.

The fort was abandoned after WW1, but during WW2 was in use once again as an air raid shelter and army camp for American military personnel.

On a sad site, the fort has fallen into disrepair. The current owners had plans to restore the structure, but these have fallen through. Owned by Milford Haven Port Authority, the site is not currently open to the public ;)

(will be going back this weekend to do more of this place) :D
