TQ1751 : Box Hill Fort

near to Westhumble, Surrey, Great Britain

Box Hill Fort
Box Hill Fort
Part of a line of 13 forts along the south to protect London, built in 1899. Never permanently manned, the adjacent building which housed the fort's caretaker now houses the National Trust visitor centre. The fort itself is now a listed building and today is the home to a colony of bats. Special large grilles have been fitted to the door to allow them to come and go as they like.
