Fort Cumberland

Fort Cumberland was built as a Napoleonic bastioned structure to protect the vulnerable coastland to the east of Portsmouth, and other incorporated structures from a mid-18th century predecessor with 19th century and later alterations.

This site was taken up as a Scheduled Monument in the care of English Heritage, who identified the main problems affecting the monument: destructive vegetation growth, defective pointing and collapsing brickwork of the historic walls.

DBR Southern were in charge of removal of the heavy vegetation and root systems from boundary walls’ masonry and pointing. In addition, conservation works, consolidation of brickwork and substantial rebuilding of the wall tops also took place.
