Henry VIII’s Artillery Fort
Pendennis Castle was built from 1539 to 1545 when England faced a possible invasion from the united powers of Catholic Europe. To defend against this, Henry VIII implemented a national programme of military and naval preparations, including new ‘castles’ or coastal artillery forts equipped with guns to shatter enemy warships and troop transports that might attempt to capture English ports.
