Fort Southwick, Portsdown Hill, Portsmouth, Southwick and Widley - Portsmouth, City of (UA)

1860s Fort, part of the Palmerston Portsmouth defences. Parts of the monument are in a poor condition. Following disposal by Defence Estates, the site is now operated by an estate management company as a business park with a number of different companies operating from the site. The new owners have carried out some repairs but more are needed, together with a carefully planned maintenance regime.
