Tilbury Fort

One of Henry VIII's coastal forts, re-modelled and extended in the 17thC in French style. The best and largest example of 17thC military engineering in England, showing the development of fortifications over the following 200 years. Exhibitions, the powder magazine and bunker-like casemates show how the fort protected London from seaborne attack.
