a little history...
Hudson's Bastion is a large fortification on the eastern side of Dover Castle, one of several bastions and outworks on this side that provided firing bases and sally ports with a measure of expendability - soldiers could withdraw further into the castle if these were overcome by an enemy. The surface entrance to the Bastion has been sealed and access is via Hudson's Passage, a locked tunnel that leads from the castle grounds to the moat. Connected to this fortification are, as well as the Passage, Hudson's Gallery providing firing points across the North East Ditch, Hudson's Caponniere and Hudson's Shaft which linked the interior of the passage to a higher level of the Castle grounds...
