TILBURY – Story of a Tudor fort

August 14, 2017 - Paranormal

From Chris Halton, excellent as always.

Here is our most ambitious work to date, and covers the history of Tilbury fort in Essex. Regarded as the best preserved bastion (star shaped) fortification in Europe, it was built in the 17th century from earlier roots as a D shaped blockhouse gun platform, and was much improved by General Charles Gordon who was later killed defending Khartoum in the Sudan from the forces of the `Mad Mahdi`, Mohamed Ahmed.
