PostSubject: Hudsons Bastion Dover August 2011   Mon Aug 08, 2011 10:13 am

Brief bit of borrowed history

Built in response to the threat of invasion by Napoleon, Hudson’s bastion was constructed on the eastern side of Dover Castle to improve its defences. It is linked to the castle via Hudson’s Passage. The bastion was designed to provide flanking fire from its numerous firing slits. The caponier projecting from the bastion into the ditch would have provided even more fire power for the defenders.

Tonight was me mates birthday so as a treat for an explore..Myself Space invader(birthday boy) Obscurity and fortknox0 went up the castle..what a night it was ..

Few slightly hurried pics from the evening





























Thanks to the guys for not getting us killed on the cliff edges, class night chaps!!
