Tilbury Fort LiDAR, River Thames, Essex 3D Model
The earliest block house version of the fort was constructed by King Henry VIII. Following naval raids during the Anglo-Dutch Wars, the fort was enlarged by Sir Bernard de Gomme from 1670 onwards to form a star-shaped defensive work, with angular bastions, water-filled moats and two lines of guns facing onto the river.
A new artillery battery was added in the south-east corner during the Napoleonic Wars. The fort became less significant as military technology developed in the 19th century. It was redeveloped to hold heavy artillery after 1868, providing a second-line of defence along the river, but further changes in technology meant that it had become obsolete by the end of the century. Instead Tilbury became a strategic depot for storing & moving troops & materiel throughout WWI. The fort had a limited role in WWII & was demobilised in 1950
