Subject: TILBURY FORT - KNIGHT family in 1850's
Date: Mon, 6 Nov 2000 20:53:34 +0000
There are two forts, the main fortress near Tilbury and Coalhouse Fort
at East Tilbury near Linford, a huge post-Crimean gun emplacement built
in the 1850s. Both are working museums and the Essex County Council
(website) Museums Service can tell you all about them.
