With Caleb and Bevsimon and co15/07/2019
With RHW and Dugswell2. Cycled across from the island HP after a night under the stars at Clonque Bay. Fort not open to the public but weak point is a granite wall in need of pointing to RHS of the gate. Climbing up ok, a rope came in handy on the reverse. HP seems to be natural rock several metres to the LHS of the gate. We stood well above that on top of a gun emplacement at N49.72691, W2.18453. Care to be exercised as there are several openings in the roofs, some vegetated over!jonglew08/07/2017
Early morning with JonG, scrambled up R side of gate, OK holds but glad of rope on descent. Summitted HP of fort which is at N end. Natural HP appears to be exposed rock on perimeter L of entrance and 2m higher than ground at gate; we were directly above it. Also summitted Ile de Raz 2h before low tide, Fort Houmet de Herbe, then Fort Les Homeaux Florains just doable 1hr before low tide with some scrambling. Then early pm flight back to Guernsey after 19h on this gorgeous island, great to explore with hired bikesRHW08/07/2017
Only got to the gate and not fit for the short wall climb due to right hip and lower back.Dugswell208/07/2017
Sailing trip, moored in the huge Braye harbour which Fort Albert watches over. Road track reaches perimeter of the Fort protected by deep steep sided dry moat. High point of fort is concrete gun placements on W edge. N49.72689deg, W002.18452deg. 65m WGS84. Currently used as island works department storage area.RichardM01/07/2017
Moored in Braye Harbour. HP is concrete WW2 defences on top of Victorian defences on inner wall of Fort Albert, protected by dry moat and metal gate of States Works Department sided by 4m high granite brick walls. Very visible across whole of Braye Harbour.Denise 01/07/2017
