Fort Burgoyne - A Brief Introduction

Fort Burgoyne

16th February 2018 : 10am - 12 noon

An opportunity to see Fort Burgoyne over the autumn / winter period. Hibernating bats means we cannot explore all areas we visit during spring and summer but other buildings might just receive a visit. With less leaves on the trees the views might just be even more spectacular from this largely hidden site. The walk will give an introduction to the site and work the Trust is undertaking to conserve and develop this important national monument.

Guided walk around the main fortifications and parts of the interior of Fort Burgoyne.

Children must be supervised at all times.

Booking essential as places are limited. Booking through  07825 901358

Free - donations to the Fort Project welcome

No entry without stout footwear. Suitable clothing and refreshments for the weather.

Portaloos are available on site

Entrance to former Connaught Barracks. 100 yards on right along Dover Road having turned off the A258 at the northern tip of Dover Castle (signposted Connaught Barracks). Attendees will be signed in and guided towards the Fort.

This walk is approximately 2 hours in length with limited opportunity to sit. Terrain is uneven and the walk climbs steeply over a section of approximately 50 metres. As part of the walk within the Fort, ramps are climbed.
