Rodborough Fort and why I set up this web-site.




  • I grew up in Rodborough on Butterrow West and spent many happy hours on The Common flying kites, playing cricket, enjoying wide games with Scouts and many other activities – indeed, I even proposed to my wife there.

    For a while I have been collecting postcards of Rodborough Fort and I have finally got around to uploading all the photos onto the web. I would never had thought that so many different postcards had been produced depicting the Fort! To date I have well over 100 cards that include the fort, even if only on the skyline. I have also included other postcards of Rodborough but I have been a bit more selective in those that I have bought.

    I hope you enjoy looking through these photographs as much as I have enjoyed collecting them. If you would like to add further information or ask questions about any of the postcards please use either the comments form on the individual card page, the Guestbook link above or email me directly.
