Cawsand Fort

Cawsand Fort


I was at a family wake today and, as my family are from Cornwall, the ceremony and meal were at a pub in Cawsand overlooking Plymouth Sound. After the meal I went for a walk and had a closer look at Cawsand Fort, which was constructed c1867 but which had an earlier phase as a ten gun battery built in 1779. It’s private residential property now but when I was a kid it was still unchanged from its original design and layout. I can’t help thinking it would have made an excellent museum and restoration project.
