I knew this was a small Victorian fort with a huge gun and I expected to be there an hour or so. I was there over four hours and was captivated by the amazing enthusiasm and knowledge of the "soldiers" who were on duty. We had a history and demonstration of muskets and rifles, drill, bayonet practise, horse-mounted lance drills and tent-pegging....and I got to fire a muzzle loading howitzer for a donation to fort funds. Oh, and the 100 ton gun is awesome, but they only fire that on special occasions. Great fun and very informative.
