New blog on the Victorian Nothe Fort & Weymouth barracks

Hi,

I hope you don't mind, but thought this might be of interest to some on here researching the lives of Victorian soldiers.

I have a new blog and FB page about the Nothe Fort in Weymouth Dorset.
But it encompasses a lot more than that.

I have articles that span the Victorian sappers who arrived to build it, the RA who armed it, various regiments who arrived to man Weymouth's Bloody Red Barracks.

Even stories about the men who were held in Portland Prison to work the government quarries that supplied the stone for the Verne Citadel, Portland breakwaters and Nothe Fort.

I have a passion for the peoples stories, tales of those who were posted to Weymouth and what they got up to and how the town received them.

Thank you for posting the details of your Blog, cannasue. I have visited Nothe Fort on several occasions, wondered at the engineering (and what it must have cost) and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. It is a fascinating place that makes a great family day out too and I strongly recommend it to all forum members.
