The fort is surrounded by a dry moat. The interior of the fort is shielded with iron plates which are about 15 inches thick and laminated with layers of teak wood up to 20 inches thick. All these measures were taken to absorb the shock of incoming shells.Unfortunately the fort today remains in a badly damaged condition. Some of the guns have been recovered after excavation though.Fort Cunningham is not directly accessible. It is located in Paget Island on St. George’s Harbor in St. Geoge’s parish Bermuda. You will need a boat to reach the island. The fort is classified as a World Heritage Site.
