History: Year 7 Trip to The Eastbourne Redoubt


Year 7's history topic for this term is Defence of the Realm, and the trip on Thursday 12 September to The Redoubt museum enlightened them profoundly on how our defenses worked during the Napoleonic era.

The time at The Redoubt provided a great way for the pupils to experience for themselves how important the Redoubt forts were as part of England's defences against the Napoleonic threat.

Not only did they get a guided tour around the fort, but they were also able to spend time in the museum learning about what life must have been like for the men stationed there at that time.
