Review of Chatham by Steve on December 30th, 2009
Response to Richard Harrison whose Grandfather was the caretaker for Fort Bridgwoods. I have lots of information about the fort and some photographs. I have been researching the forts history as a War Office Wireless Interception Station from 1921 until 1946. Would love to hear from you. Please contact via e-mail steveg4hje@blueyonder.co.uk

Review of Chatham by derek harrison on January 10th, 2008
hi there i was just looking at the very few bits of information on fortbridgewood and close by cookham wood there is a little bit of history to read but sadley no pictures. my interest is of a family nature my grandfarther was the caretaker of fort bridgewood and lived on the grounds along with my grandmother. he would do regular checks on the fort when i was a young boy he would take me with him it was great he had a big key that opened the drawbridge then we would walk over the bridge with the huge moat below. inside there were many rooms with big generaters that my grandad would test regulary i can remember they were so loud when he switced them on. there was a big tank in there also i have a couple of pictures of the fort i was just wondering if any body had any more pictures of the old fort perhaps they could email me with them.thanks derek harrison
