AGM & Conference
This handbook has been compiled for the members of the Fortress Study Group attending the 2017 AGM and Conference . The conference is based at Rees Hall part of Portsmouth
University. It will include visits to the fortifications around Gosport and on the shores of the Solent.
The handbook is not a definitive guide to these fortifications, but is intended to be a practical tool to take on site. The limited amount of information is intended to assist in
the understanding of remaining structures and interpretation of the remains.
All content has been drawn from published sources or personal observation and is believed to be in the public domain. Photographs, etc are generally the organiser’s own
except where indicated. My thanks go to David Moore of the Victorian Forts & Artillery, Wikipedia and Google. Also for helping me with the photography and text Charles
Blackwood and Alastair Fyfe. The editor apologises in advance for any mistakes or inadvertent breach of copyright.
