A corner of the wall and ditch of Crownhill Fort
One of the Palmerston Forts (later nicknamed Palmerston Follies) built to protect Plymouth naval dockyard from Napoleon III's potential invasion. The defeat of the French in the Franco-Prussian war made the threat unlikely. Crownhill Fort has been restored by the Landmark Trust
