Fort Nelson is one of five defensive forts built on the summit of Portsdown Hill, England in 1860s, overlooking the important naval base of Portsmouth. Now fully restored, it has been part of the Royal Armouries since 1995, housing their collection of artillery, including the Great Turkish Bombard used at Dardanelles in 1464 and parts of the famous Iraqi 'Project Babylon' Gulf War-era supergun.
