  • Information

    The Drop Redoubt is one of the two linked forts on Dovers Western Heights. Linked to Citadel, by a series of dry moats. The artillery at the Redoubt faced mostly inland as it was constructed to defend against an invading force attempting to capture Dover from the rear.

    The construction of the Redoubt was in two periods: the first being from 1804-1808 during the Napoleonic Wars, and the second from 1859-1864 following the recommendations of the 1859 Royal Commission.
