poole in the second world war
a brief history of what is still there to this day
fort henry
Perhaps one of the most famous bunkers in the country, Fort Henry was used by Churchill, the King, Eisenhower, Montgomery and that's only a few. It was built for one purpose, to be a observation post to watch the training for operation Overlord. It's situated right next to middle beach car park and it is in very good condition. There is also a gun emplacement next to it that would have once mounted a 4 inch gun.
