St Catherine’s Island Fort, a Victorian fort off the Pembrokeshire Coast at Tenby, is to re-open to the public after 36 years.
The fort is a grade II listed building and a scheduled ancient monument which was a marine fort from 1868-1870, built to protect Milford Haven. After being decommissioned in the early 20th century it became a private dwelling until being brought back to military use during Wold War II. Following the war it became a zoo but finally closed its doors in 1978 and has lain idle ever since.
The original plans by Tenby Island Project to re-open the fort were turned down by Pembrokeshire Coast National Park’s Planning Committee but the revised plans have now been accepted and planning permission granted.
