The History

This awesome Napoleonic site has been standing strong since 1810 – and it needed to be strong – It protected the Bridge against a French invasion!

Its strategic military location lends itself to some of the best panoramic views of the beautiful countryside. And being one of the best examples of a Napoleonic Fort in Britain and Ireland, it was known in military terms as a “Tete de Pont” Bridgehead Defence.
