Medway's Abandoned Forts and Bunkers

Despite how dull most of Medway is, there are LOADS of amazing abandoned forts and Bunkers in Medway and the surrounding area.

These forts were built from the 1850s, through both world wars, and to the cold war. Some of the forts have survived as tourist attractions. It is amazing how many abandoned forts there are in this area.

RANT: One word I absolutely hate is "restoration". What makes these abandoned places so special is that they haven't been over restored. When people talk about restoring places, they say that they are turning them back to how they used to be. THEY ARE NOT. What they are actually doing is turning them into horrid museum theme parks. I HATE so called 'historic buildings' where the building has been converted into a modern tourist experience. Like some twat has just tried to a make it look historic to attract tourists, but have taken away the building's character.

What to see first if you are new here....
