Fort Nelson Short course
Fort Nelson lies to the north of Portsmouth on Portsdown Hill. Construction started in 1862 and was part of a ring of forts surrounding Portsmouth to protect it from advances in gun technology. The fear was that a potential enemy would attack from the land, take possession of the hill, and bombard Portsmouth. Unusually, for this reason, Fort Nelson's defensive gun emplacements face inland.
On this short course, you'll look at the construction issues in creating the Fort, the conservation issues the fort faces today, and the ongoing conservation issues for the Royal Armouries Collection at Fort Nelson.
