Fort Burgoyne, Connaught Barracks, Guston / Dover - Dover

1860s polygonal-plan fort now part of a later barracks. The earth-covered terraced casemates are vacant and the structures on the ramparts (the brick-built Haxo casemates) have been at risk from lack of maintenance and invasive ivy growth. The site is owned by The Land Trust which is working on plans for its sustainable future. Substantial progress for brick work repair and vegetation control was made using Homes and Community Agency funds. Further vegetation works and conversion of the former Officers Stables has also been undertaken.
