Dymchurch Redoubt, Hythe Ranges, Hythe - Folkestone and Hythe

The original fort of 1806 is a massive brick circular structure within a dry moat, and has C20 additions. Located on Ministry of Defence ranges, some parts have been brought back into use as a military training facility. There is brickwork deterioration to both the original fort and later additions. A Conservation Plan was prepared in 2005. Phased repairs are in progress.
