  • Information

    Calshot Castle built between 1539 and 1540 was one of the Henry VIII artillery forts, built to defend the coast and in the case of Calshot the sea passage to Southampton. The castle located at the end of Calshot Spit had a keep at its centre, surrounded by a curtain wall and a moat.

    More recently this was used as a Navy and RAF base and in particular a seaplane base but as seaplanes became obsolete, it was finally closed in 1961.
