Road to Efford Fort
Road to Efford Fort
This is what you find when attempting to gain access to Efford Fort by the principal road leading to it. The tpoices say, unequivolcally "no trespassing". "Efford Fort was one of the ring of Victorian Palmerston's Follies built to provide defence from risk of French invasion. The area was also heavily occupied by the American army during the preparations for D-Day". LinkExternal link . I can only echo the sentiments of Bob Bruce, one of a visiting party from the Plymouth & District Archaeological Society: "Most of us were surprised how extensive the Palmerston works were and how much had survived, though often concealed by vegetation. Some of us wondered whether Plymouth should be making more of this part of its military heritage." LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )
