Title: Townsend Redoubt, Chatham
Post by: kyn on May 17, 2009, 13:00:05
29 May 1804

Fort Townsend, a most stupendous pile of brickwork at Chatham, is now taken down.  The engineers at present employed have been taking a survey of the land lying parallel to the Medway, from a point terminating the parish of Chatham, adjoining the river, to the utmost extent of Gillingham, in order to continue, as it is supposed, the present line of fortification.  The new stables, for the accommodation of the artillery and bat horses, are also taken down, in order to be removed, to make room for the new garrison.

Could this be the only image I have ever seen of this redoubt? :)
