A former Victorian military fort built to guard the Solent, this was the first fort of many built on the Island by Lord Palmerston to protect the Island against an envisaged French attack (1852). It offers superb views across to Hurst Castle. Listen to the varied story of this gun battery, barracks, torpedo, anti-submarine loop detection and mine & searchlight research centre. You also have the chance of visiting the only seesaw searchlight emplacement in the world!
