The Slough Fort Preservation Trust has been rather busy since last month!
Following permission from Historic England to open up one section of the Central Fort glacis and a successful grant application to Veolia, work has begun to remove approximately 600 cubic meters of earth from the northern face of the Central Fort. This work has answered some long-running questions, while raising some new ones, too!
Nonetheless, it has been interesting and exciting to see the work unfold, as well as see parts of Slough Fort that have not seen the light of day since the 1890's. While there is still a lot of work to be carried out before this project is complete and ready for when Slough Fort reopens to the public in April 2020, we are very excited to see what other new information we might be able to uncover in the coming weeks.
