The British Empire and its effect on Plymouth


Crownhill Fort, before World War One


This photograph shows the main entrance to Crownhill Fort. Note the sentry box and the grazing horses which would have been used by the fort itself to help pull limbers and carriages. You can also see soldiers marching down the road towards the photographer. The road is Tavistock Road. Picture courtesy of John Symons.
