Re: Tenby Fort - South Wales - 8/6/08

Known as:

St Catherine’s Fort Tenby, Pembrokeshire - West Wales

St Catherine’s Fort lies on St Catherine’s island just off the coast of Tenby in West Wales. It was built in the 1860s to protect the Pembrokeshire coast from possible invasion by France. There are gun embrasures down both the Northern and Southern sides. It was never called to action. Sold into private ownership in 1907 but was manned during WW2 by the Home Guard, and was eventually many things since including a zoo.
