The door to an English fort….

Thursday Doors

My door for today is from Calshot Castle, in Hampshire, which was built by Henry VIII in 1539, as part of his chain of defences along the English south coast. At that time, invasions were feared from either the French or Spanish navy. The Castle was built on a shingle spit close to the deep water channel at the mouth of Southampton Water.
