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.

There was some access via a small hole in the fence but due to recent spates of vandalism, security have looked the site down.

Fort Gilkicker History

Fort Gilkicker is a historic Palmerston fort built at the eastern end of Stokes Bay, Gosport.

The first fort on the site was constructed between 1863 and 1871 to support near-by Fort Monckton and eleven gun placements overlooking the key anchorage of Spithead.
