Distributed for Royal Armouries

Fort Nelson Guidebook

Located atop a hill outside Portsmouth, Fort Nelson was built in the 1860s as part of a chain of fortifications designed to protect the great naval harbor of Portsmouth and its Royal Dockyard from a feared French invasion. Today the fort houses the national collection of artillery, held in trust for by the Royal Armouries, and it has more than three hundred and fifty big guns and historic cannons on display. This heavily illustrated book is packed with useful information about both the fort itself and the artillery on display and is a perfect introduction to a remarkable site.
