Built just outside Felixstowe, Suffolk, at the mouth of the River Orwell, Landguard Fort was originally designed in the sixteenth century to guard the entrance to Harwich. It has developed over the years, but the biggest change was in the 1870s where the interior barracks were rebuilt to a keep-like design.
I was asked to visit the Fort with members of English Heritage and to provide advice on appropriate paint colours for this ancient coastal fort. My experience on other military sites helped greatly and I was able to specify relevant colours from the 1930s British Standard paint colour range.
