St.Catherine's Fort, Tenby, South Wales


While it's common to associate fortresses from the medieval period or earlier, they continued to play a role in warfare until well into the 20th century.  Case in point is the fortress which was built on St. Catherine's Island in Wales, near Tenby.  In this video, Vivify Multimedia gives us a bird's eye view of this fortification, which was conceived in the 1850's due to concerns about the possibility of a French invasion led by Napoleon III.  However, the danger had passed prior to its completion in 1886.
