Fort Cumberland - Looking out to tower

3 Shot hand held HDR of the large tower in Eastney from Fort Cumberland during open Day for Festival of British Archaeology a great way to see this otherwise closed fort.

 

Fort Cumberland is a pentagonal artillery fortification erected to guard the entrance to Langstone Harbour, east of the naval port of Portsmouth on the south coast of England. It was sited to protect the Royal Navy Dockyard, by preventing enemy forces from landing in Langstone Harbour and attacking from the landward side. Fort Cumberland is widely recognised as the finest example of a bastion trace fort in England. (WikiPedia)
