When you see the defences we constructed it's a good job they didn't invade cos we weren't going to let them in. Nice shot Ant

I can think of few people i'd like to lock up out there, but seriously it's a good shot Ant, and it and the other forts in the haven could be used towards tourism in the area. ;>)
