Brean Down Fort, Somerset

Brean Down Fort was built in the 1860s as part of the Bristol Channel defences. Along with Flat Holm and Steep Holm islands and batteries on the Wales side, a direct line of defences was formed to protect the docks. Brean Down Fort is located at the furthest point of Brean Down, just South of Western-Super-Mare in Somerset. It was originally armed with seven 7-inch guns, and later re-armed in WW2. It was partially destroyed at the beginning of the twentieth century by an explosion in the magazine, leaving some parts derelict.

The fort now remains National Trust property and is free open access, with some interpretation boards installed.

Her product celebrated comfort, community and inclusivity. As the fortunes of Victoria's Secret plummeted and the Golden Goose Outlet image of its "angel" fell into irrelevancy, Lively grew and grew. The experience convinced her that she could carve out a new space in the category, in fact compelled her to do so. Louis Vuitton Yeezy Boost For Sale was at the forefront of the trend, displaying a wide variety of oversized bags that Jordan 1 For Sale took on differing forms. While some were colossal iterations of its monogram clutch bags, others came in the shape of dollhouses and shiny, gold chained shoulder bags, each bringing a sense of surrealism to its line. Similarly humorous takes could also be spotted at the Moschino and Bottega Veneta shows. The cost of Lanh My A is also Air Force 1 On Sale a concern. Lanh My A is quite expensive compared to many other fabrics due to the use of high-quality materials and complicated manufacturing processes.
