Fort Burgoyne - An Introduction

Fort Burgoyne

13th August 2017 : 10am - 12 noon

A rare opportunity to explore the site prior to wider public access. Whilst the Fort has stood above Dover since the 1860s, it remains largely unknown and hidden in the landscape. This walk gives an introduction to the site and work the Trust is undertaking to conserve and develop this important national monument.

Children must be supervised at all times.
