August 2023

Following on with our consent for works in the western gun position we have now completed the earth retaining wall. We will now start to demolish the old 1960,s steps that used to be the access point from the Haven site to get to the horse riding stables. We will follow this with starting to excavate the 9.2 inch Moncrieff gun pit to see what remains. We are ever hopeful after finding a cast iron wheel which may have come from the gun. We are also progressing with the restoration of the main fort building and have another 4 windows on order arriving in October. After getting these painted and fitted it will enable us to weather proof 3 more rooms before winter sets in.
