History of Fort Amherst

Fort Amherst in Chatham, Kent, was built to protect Chatham Dockyard after the invasion by the Dutch in 1667, which raided the River Medway and attacked Chatham's Royal Dockyard.

In 1708 plans were beginning to be drawn up to construct a fortification to protect the Royal Dockyard from a land-based attack.

In 1714 land was bought to construct the fortifications, but work did not start until 1755.

Part of the site chosen included a chalk pit with several caves. These caves were extended between 1776 and 1805 to provide an underground labyrinth of tunnels, protected confidential gun positions and protection in the event of a siege. The tunnels contain many interesting and essential features, including a well, privies, loopholed defences, cannon positions and defendable gateways.

To ensure the protection of the Dockyard, three defendable gateways were constructed to control and defend access into the area protected by the Chatham Lines.

In 1820 the defences were declared obsolete due to better artillery equipment with a more excellent firing range. The whole of the fortifications was used as a training ground during the Victorian period; the practise sieges were so famous that thousands of people came to Chatham to watch them.

During WWII, the Anti-Invasion Planning Unit and Civil Defence utilised tunnels and used a section as their headquarters. This is where Civil Defence was coordinated for the North Kent area in the event of bombing and support and assistance to the general public after such an incident. A section of the tunnels has been reconstructed into the Civil Defence HQ as it was in 1939.
