Home / Kent / Cliffe Fort 6

aerial photographs of Cliffe Fort, Hoo Peninsula , Kent England UK Cliffe Fort is one of the Palmerston Forts built as a result of the 1859 Royal Commission on the Defence of the United Kingdom. The fort was constructed 1861-70 and served until 1927 at which point it was abandoned. During the Second World War it was rearmed and used as an anti-aircraft battery. After the war it was sold off into private ownership and has since been allowed to decay. Although the site is a Scheduled Monument it is considered at risk with Historic England stating its condition as "Very Bad".

The easiest way to navigate this gallery is using the geographic menu on the left. The aerial photographs are all organised in galleries according to their location so start with the county and then choose the town or village. Wales & Scotland are at the bottom under the English Counties. If your looking at a picture and are not sure where it is, click the arrow on the upper right and it will show you which album it is in. Click the album name to see nearby images. There is a search facility ( bottom left ) but this only works with words I have put into it. That's fine for searches of places or well known buildings but in most cases I have not entered road name or a post code. The gallery is only a small part of my collection of UK aerial photographs so please Email if you would like to buy an aerial view of something not in the gallery. There are over 25,000 photos in the gallery and I have an archive of around half a million pictures going back to 1999.
