  • Redoubt Fortress: a Guide to the Building
    was built onto the shingle beach it was never intended to hold water as it would just drain away Even though it was a massive obstacle the dry moat still needed defending if an attacker managed to climb down into it to assault the walls For protection five caponiers were built in the moat If the enemy descended into the moat the soldiers could fire on them at close range from inside the caponiers One of the caponiers is still accessible to visitors from the museum in casemate 3 Gun Platform Above the casemates is the terre plein or gun platform This has eleven embrasures or gun emplacements but only ten guns were ever mounted at the Redoubt Next to the embrasures are small magazines or storage compartments which would hold the shot and gunpowder for each cannon The gun platform provides fantastic views of English Channel and coastline from Hastings to Beachy Head The Glacis The Redoubt is surrounded by an earth slope called a Glacis which is designed to protect the walls of the fortress from enemy gun fire It was made from the earth and shingle dug out when the dry moat was created Enemy fire would either become embedded in the earth or bounce off Only the parapet of the gun platform was vulnerable from enemy fire Drop Bridge Unlike today the fortress was designed with only one way in across the drop bridge As the name suggests half of this bridge could be dropped to prevent enemy attackers from crossing the moat and invading the building Visitors can cross the rebuilt bridge from the Royal Parade entrance to the fortress Rainwater Tanks The building has four water tanks built underneath the Fortress each collecting up to 3 000 gallons of water A series of drainpipes
