St. Michael's Isle (aka Fort Island)

St. Michael’s Isle is now a small peaceful bird sanctuary and golf course that hides its ferocious past.

The island has been the home to a number of big battles defending the island against invading Scots in later years the fort was reinforced in the 1640s to protect against attacks from France and Spain and then later again in the English Civil War.

On the island, you have the remnants of Derby Fort on the eastern end and a ruined medieval chapel on the south side that replaced an older Celtic keeill at the same spot.
