The Fortress Tour

Thursday 15th September 2016
Outside Portland Castle,
Liberty Road,

Portland’s geological structure makes it a natural fortress - a quality exploited over the years for defensive purposes and giving rise to many rumors of secret military experimentation. Join historian Pauline Crump on a part bus, part walking tour of the buildings and curious structures left behind and the stories they tell.

The tour will include a visit to Lee Berwick’s sound installation ‘The Sonic Anomaly Sideshow’ at the High Angle Battery.

Meeting Point: Outside Portland Castle, Liberty Road, Castletown, Dorset, DT5 1AZ
Guidance: This tour is by mini bus but includes some walking between venues and over rough ground – please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
