WN Fort Regent
Fort Regent was built as a military fortress and was completed in 1814. It stands on top of a granite outcrop known as Le Mont de la Ville, it overlooks St Helier and has surrounding views over St Aubins and St Clements. The Fort itself was built in 1806, during the Napoleonic Wars, to defend the island against invasion. Named in honour of the Prince Regent, the fort has never had to be used for its designed purpose, instead it has been used to house garrisons and was occupied by German forces in World War Two.
