Location : Europe

A fortification has stood at this location since 1680 to protect the nearby Rocquaine Bay.

Initially armed with two 3.5 inch guns, it was upgraded to three 18-pdrs by the early 1800s.  By 1842 the fort had been decommission.

In World War 2 the German occupying forces mounted a machine gun position on the western wall.
