Fort for the Day

Welcome to 'Fort for the Day', a free-to-use project that provides you with grid references and access details to 365 of Great Britain's many forts, plus one extra for Leap Year.

Forty-five of Ordnance Survey's 204 Landranger maps were used to collect these 366 forts – see How it Works for more details.

Many more forts can be found across Great Britain on the remaining Landranger maps and many of these will be added at a later date...

Where available, official sources of historical information for a fort are also provided.
