Garrison Point Fort
Work on the building of this fort was completed in 1872. It had a capacity for 36 guns and 360 men and was intended to protect the narrow entrance to the River Medway. It was used in the 1870s for the testing of the Brennan torpedo. The modern buildings within the fort are used by the Medway Port Authority for signalling and control purposes. The boarding tunnel for the Sheerness - Vlissingen ferry used to pass through the fort.
