  • Really enjoyed my walk around the fort , fantastic views. Small museum is unusual but very interesting. Also volunteers who run museum sell tea, coffee, burgers and hot dogs to raise money at weekends.
  • Interesting place to have a wander around. Some good working displays of WWII Era radio technology and also the massive gun batteries.
  • Really nice place for a walk .if you do the tour you will get really good factual information
  • Full of history and a great way to spend an hour or so.
  • Unexpected treat! Visited with my father who has vivid memories of WW2. The volunteers who run the site are friendly and know their stuff. Nice area within the site for a picnic. Excellent for area for a walk and a swim(if you are feeling brave). With a small grant they could take the museum to the next level.
