Fort Gilkicker, Gosport

Fort Gilkicker is a historic palmerston fort built at the eastern end of Stokes Bay, Gosport to dominate the key anchorage of Spithead. It was erected between 1863 and 1871 as a semi-circular arc with 22 casemates, to be armed with 5 12″ guns, 17 10″ guns and 5 9″ guns. The actual installed armament rather differed from this. In 1902 the RML guns were replaced by 2 9.2″ and 2 6″ BL guns, and before the First World War the walls were further strengthened with substantial earthwork embankments.
