Charles Fort

Last week we took a trip to Kinsale and Charles Fort – it was an overcast, showery kind of day, perfect for black and white pictures!
rain over Kinsale

The view from the car park towards Kinsale town – the rain is coming!

These strange octagons are to the right of the entrance gate – I have no idea what they were for…

A great view out to sea, imagine the scene crowded with Spanish Galleons intent on war…

It’s not hard to imagine soldiers hurrying up and down these stone steps between the barracks and the parade ground…

Looking down on what was once the rear of the Governors house.

More Barracks, I think these were where those soldiers lucky enough to be allowed to have their wives and families with them lived.
