Aerial Photos of Forts

Here are some collections of interactive aerial photos of fortified areas featured on this website, supplied by Google Maps. Hopefully, these should give a better idea of the scale of these impressive forts, which is often best appreciated from above. One can zoom in, or view a larger version, if required. I have tried to make the order logical, i.e. the Wight fortifications go clockwise around the island. I will add more as time allows. Please click a photo below to select the area.
