Coalhouse Fort dates back to around 1861 as a defense position on the River Thames estuary. In the 1980’s a project was put forward for restoring the Fort and making it a place for visitors to learn and enjoy. Today it offers an attraction for all ages and caters for a variety of activity days, school trips and seasonal events.
Run entirely by volunteers, this attraction has lots of character and you can see the care which has been taken to keep this historic site open to the public.
We are thrilled to announce that Thurrock Council has awarded us the contract to develop a site wide interpretation strategy. We will be putting forward inspiring interpretation ideas to ensure the Fort and its surrounding area reaches its full potential.
The interpretation strategy will encompass the Fort and surrounding park, as well as the nearby the Parish Church of St. Catherine and Bata Shoe Factory, creating a visitor experience of the Fort in it’s wider context.
Interpreation will complement the sensitivity of the site and be presented through static mobile and interactive media.
