Overview

From the 2nd of October 207, the museum is closed until further notice because the builders are in to carry out extensive work improving access. This includes a new bridge over the moat, an internal lift between the two floors and ramps inside where there are steps. This work will last approximately 2 months.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Fort. It was educational and very interesting. A word of advice though...it was a cloudy day and thankfully I had a waterproof on as its pretty cool inside so go prepared. Worth the money.

Sorry you were cold. On a hot day it is lovely and cool and on a wintery day it feels quite warm.

On the outside does not look much but inside is a fascinating look at our recent past. If you are of a certain age, like me, you will see things that we had or used.

I am sorry but you may have been misinformed. The museum is not closed and the sign on display is to prevent vehicles from going on to the roof covering half of the moat. We may have to close for short periods later this year...More
