£431,000 revamp for historic fort

SEDGEMOOR District Council will hand over the keys to a World War Two fort after completing a £431,000 renovation project.

Neville Jones, council chairman, will conduct the handover of the Brean Down Fort to the National Trust at a re-opening ceremony on Tuesday.

"It is going to be a great day for Sedgemoor and for tourism because people will have access to this Palmerstonian fort, which is as good as you, can find anywhere in the country," he said.

The trust has bought the fort for the nation and will work to preserve it as a heritage site and improve access.
