Fort Gilkicker

Fort Gilkicker is an abandoned 1800's military fort on the South coast of England. Parts of the main building are very unsteady and fragile so watch your step, the gun armaments are pretty damp and rotten. Over the years vandals have trashed much of the place but it's well worth a visit.
