Cumberland has a unique place in the history of fortifications. It was the last bastioned fort built in the UK, and the first to incorporate casemates in the curtain walls to house the garrison. It is the most impressive example of eighteenth century defensive architecture in England, and perhaps the best preserved example in Europe.
