Portland Castle

Another day another castle, this time Portland Castle, built by the Tudors to defend Weymouth.

It's quite compact

The main gun battery. This would have been covered with another battery on top

And there was some dressing up clothes, so here I am as a member of the Invalid Company of the Royal Artillery

And as a Tudor gunner

Just across the harbour was a couple of Phoenix Caissons that were part of the mulberry harbour.
