AGM & Conference
This handbook has been compiled for the members of the Fortress Study Group attending the 2018 AGM and Conference . The conference is based at the University of Kent.
It will include visits to the fortifications in and around the Dover area.
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 are from various collections; my own
and pictures from websites. Data also comes from the following to whom my thanks go David Moore of the Victorian Forts & Artillery, ‘From Above’ Historic England Collection
Wikipedia and Google Earth. My thanks also goes to Alastair Fyfe who has proof read and corrected. The editor apologises in advance for any mistakes or inadvertent breach
