History Of Fort Paull
Fort Paull is a gun battery situated on the north bank of the Humber, near the village of Paull, downstream from Hull in northern England.
Batteries were built at Paull by Henry VIII and Charles I during the Civil War, the siege of Hull and the Napoleonic Wars. The current fort is of pentagonal design and was built in 1861-4 on the recommendations of the Royal Commission; hence it is one of the Palmerston Forts. The original emplacements, nineteen 64-pound (29 kg) RML artillery pieces, were almost completely demolished in 1894 when concrete emplacements for three disappearing guns and two quick-firing guns were built. A mining station was added in 1886, and searchlights followed in 1907.
At the outset of the First World War, Paull was judged too close to Hull, and disarmed when new forts were built at Sunk Island and Stallingborough. The fort was used as a training base between the wars, and during the Second World War, it was converted into a magazine to serve the Russian convoys; a degaussing station was also added.
In 1960, Fort Paull was released from the Ministry of Defence and closed down. In 1964, a group of volunteers, the Friends of Fort Paull, took over the site and began to restore the fort as a heritage museum. Fort Paull finally opened to the public in 2000. Fort Paull houses a waxwork museum showing figures that have influenced the fort's long history and an armoury showing various artillery pieces and armoured vehicles. The defense also plays host to various military re-enactments from time to time.
Fort Paull is the location of the last remaining complete Blackburn Beverley heavy transport aircraft.'
