Fort Elson, RNAD, Military Road, Gosport - Gosport

Polygonal artillery fort of 1853-60. Damaging vegetation has taken hold of the site. Programmes of vegetation removal are intermittent. A management plan has been drafted but not agreed or implemented. The building cannot be occupied because it lies within a munitions storage area.
