Harwich Redoubt Fort Museums
An extremely impressive 180ft (60m) diameter circular fort built in 1808 to defend the port of Harwich against a Napoleonic invasion. It is the only such example open to the public. Eleven guns sit on the battlements. Eighteen casements below would house 300 troops in siege conditions. Part of the fort is now used as a military museum. Battle re-enactments and other events are held during the summer months. The fort was restored by the Harwich Society as a voluntary project.
