Redoubt Fortress by Jarrold Publishing

About

The Eastbourne Redoubt was built to keep Napoleon's armies out of Britain. It now invites you to discover more than 200 years of history within its walls.

For over 200 years, the Redoubt has stood ready to defend the Eastbourne coast. It formed part of a chain of fortifications built to deter Napoleon's forces in the early 1800s, and it still stands as a unique monument to that time. Garrisoned by troops until the early 1900s and again during World War II.

The Redoubt Fortress is one of only three surviving Napoleonic Redoubts in the UK and is recognised by English Heritage as being of national importance.

With 200 years of history at the Redoubt Fortress, built during the Napoleonic wars, this unique fortification was also used during World Wars I and II and is the ideal filming location for this genre.
