Tregantle Fort, Antony - Cornwall (UA)

Fort, built 1858-1865. The fort is vacant, with no end use identified. The interior of the keep is in poor condition, notably the wooden floors. New external doors and windows have been fitted. Interior partitions are still awaiting re-installation. Elsewhere in the fort, the barracks accommodation is no longer used full time with interiors deteriorating in places due to moisture penetration. A section of the counterscarp wall has collapsed. Significant localised problems remain to be tackled elsewhere on the site.
