THE KINGS BASTION

DESCRIPTION + /

Bastion, part of Portsmouth's defences. Rebuilt to its present form in the 17th century. Begun as an earthwork circa 1522, rebuilt in stone as an angle tower in 1541-5. Modifications continued until 1589, by when it had been converted into a flanker angled bastion. Although much altered, King's Bastion's present form is due to the modification of the whole defensive system by de Gomme in the late 17th century.
