WELCOME ABOARD HORSE SAND FORT
Discover the amazing past of our historic fortresses
The newest addition to our collection of forts, Horse Sand, is the same spectacular size as No Man’s and shares the same compelling past. We want to showcase the incredible history of these forts and have preserved the beauty of this historic monument and its 100 chambers and living quarters, original gun carriages and armour plated walls. Take a step back in time as you take in Horse Sand Fort and all its glory.
Restoring the Past
The decision to create a museum on Horse Sand Fort was taken in order to preserve the valuable and fascinating history of this site, and create a memorable insight for visitors keen to learn more about the monumental transformation undertaken on both Spitbank and No Man’s.
Horse Sand fort was purchased by Solent Forts in an abandoned state having been unoccupied for decades. The first step in creating our living museum was to clear the site of debris, removing anything not of historical significance.
In places the fort was unstable and dedicated teams of experts battled challenging weather to ensure the site was safe and secure before further renovation could begin. A thankless task, the site was painstakingly scoured so that all elements of historical relevance were preserved.
Currently No Man’s Fort is closed to visitors until further safety regulations have been met.
