Cliffe Fort, Cliffe and Cliffe Woods - Medway (UA)

Fort circa 1860. Fort is now flooded. Much of it is stable due to massive construction, but significant detail is vulnerable to decay or heritage crime. Remains of Brennan Torpedo Rail are also vulnerable to erosion. Historic England has carried out a detailed survey. Investigation is to be carried out as to the source of the flood water.
