Listing Type : Fort
Location : Australasia

Fort Jeroivs was built of Ripapa Island in 1886 as a result of the perceived Russian scare.  The building was not to be completed until 1895. The fort was built to mount four guns, 2 x 8-inch and 2 x 6-inch,  with one 8-inch and one 6-inch disappearing gun still in place.  The image by Megan Hieatt shows the 8-inch gun.  The other image shows two gun barrels beside the pits.

A mine control station was completed in 1886.
