Fort Southwick
Fort Southwick
Another of the "Palmerston Forts" built to protect Portsmouth from land attack. In more recent times Fort Southwick was part of the control centre for the D-Day invasions. There were (and still are in some cases) a network of underground tunnels and war rooms under Fort Southwick, linking many of the other forts and military establishments in the area.
