KINGS COUNTERGUARD

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of Kings' Counterguard. Sir Bernard de Gomme had improved the defence of the South-West corner of Portsmouth by adding a counterguard parallel to the Kings' Bastion within the double-moat and an enmoated hornwork to the South of that. When the outer-moat was converted to a covered way by Desmaretz ca.1745-56 and the hornwork demolished, the counterguard was considerably strengthened. Demolished circa 1870.
