So I have been playing with my new camera and decided to share a few photos here. The shot above was taken during a recent visit to Fort Camden.
It is a classical coastal artillery fort that was let go into decline. Fortifications on the site originally date from about 1550, it was added to in 1600 - 75% of the fort is underground!
However, it was taken over in 2010 by the County Council and then Rescue Camden - a group of local volunteers who wish to see it brought back to it's former glory.
It is mainly a 19th century construction, with a defensive moat 40 ft deep. There are underground tunnels, underground magazine, artillery batteries, musketery galleries and a brennan torpedo site.
Every small boys dream!

Thanks for peeking, hope you enjoyed today's "unusual" post!
