PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 for ARTS, CULTURE & LIFESTYLE

Two More Palmerston Forts Bought

Here’s some interseting news for you. Mike Clare who bought Spitbank Fort back in 2009 has now bought Horse Sand Fort and No Man’s Land Fort. Architects have been working alongside English Heritage to restore the forts in to a ‘time capsule’ at Horse Sand and an £800 a night luxury hotel and spa resort at No Man’s Land.

You can still check out the Spitbank Fort virtual tour from one of our older posts back in 2009 when the building was originally taken over HERE.

If you’re unfamiliar with any of the Victorian forts in the Solent you can have a good read over at www.royalnavalmuseum.org. Luckily, they were never used as they were intended…or were they?
