Sunday gun firings

Live firings of historic artillery pieces
21st July - 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Fort Nelson is one of the few places where you can experience live firings of historic artillery pieces.

Today’s big gun is the 64-pounder RML  which will be fired from the ramparts at 11.30 am, 1 pm, 2 pm & 3 pm

These special gun firings will be carried out by uniformed crews of the Portsdown Artillery Volunteers (PAV), and will include gun drills and talks.

The next Sunday gun firing will be on 8 September.

These are free events, suitable for all ages. Ear defenders will be available.
