Dwellings & Fortifications.

About 25 years ago I built a small fort in Henry's Wood on the Eastern edge of Wychwood Forest. This fort is now in a bad state of repair, with some walls having fallen down. Since building this fort I have learnt a lot more about original constructions, so I hope to rebuild this fort better than I did the last time.

That's pretty cool. Over here we use a lot of reconstructed wood fortifications (particularly Fort Meigs in Perrysburg, OH). There are even a few old blockhouse structures standing, though sadly very few in the Old Northwest area.
