SX 45 SW MAKER-WITH-RAME
6/70 No. 5 Redoubt
Fort/redoubt. Late C18. Sandstone and limestone rubble with limestone dressings,
roofs of barrack rooms formerly slated. Roughly square on plan, with gatehouse and
barrack rooms along east range; surrounded by moat, formerly with bridge to east.
The walls and basement storey below the gatehouse and barrack rooms are battered,
with a limestone bull nose moulding around the north, south and west sides. The east
side is formed of a long single storey gatehouse and barrack room block, similar to
that at Grenville Battery (q.v.). The central gatehouse has a segmental-headed
gateway, 2 rubble piers remaining which formerly supported the bridge. The barrack
rooms to each side have slanted musketry loops to cover the gate bridge, with
sandstone dressings. Stone bomb-proof roof. Some secondary windows have been made
in the barrack rooms.
Interior: The moat bridge has been removed, so interior not accessible. The Redoubt
was formerly used as living accommodation. It remains as a fine example of a
Napoleonic fort, and is of great landscape value. Ancient Monument no. 833.
