West Sussex Advertiser and South Coast Journal, June 21 1860

The Coast Armament

Major General Bloomfield, and his aide-de-camp Major Teesdale… were here on Saturday, on the annual visit of inspection of the artillery and armaments of the coast.

The new fort here, constructed about three years ago, on the latest principles and a miniature of Sebastopol, is found to have been very badly executed as to some portion of the material used and requiring an outlay of about £1000.
