Fort Boarhunt
Defending the Realm
About this creation
This is my large cannon fort which I have named Fort Boarhunt (pronounced as 'Borrunt').

The fort's primary purpose is coastal defence; either in protection of a port from an enemy fleet or pirate raids or strategically positioned to prevent a enemy landing. The fort's primary armament is a battery of 8 cannon set in linked casemates on the first floor. The battery commander's post is the protected raised platform on the forward ramparts. From there he can direct the fire of the battery of cannon. The battery is the objective purpose of the fort. The rest of the fortification serves to protect the battery from infantry assault.

Flanking fire is provided by four bastions plus scarp galleries on the long walls.The fort has two access points. The first is the main doorway on the long left hand side which is protected by flanking fire from one of the main bastions and a scarp gallery. The second is the small sallyport at the rear of the fort which is protected by crossing fire from the two rear bastions and from the crenelations on top of the wall and bastions. The fort has 72 loopholes (rifle firing ports) and 44 crenelated ports.

This design evolved from a smaller fort built along the same principles. It divides into two sections for transport and storage: 1, the main battery; and 2, the curtain wall and rear bastions. I displayed this fort at the Herts and Essex Lego Fest and it was demolished soon after.
