Constructed by the British government in 1855 in order to provide defence for the Alderney Breakwater, a major construction project at the time, Fort Tourgis is an extensive fortification in Alderney to the northwest of St Anne. It was adapted by German occupying forces during World War II. After the war it was used by the military up until the 1960″™s then became a boarding school before falling into disrepair. Alongside the fort stands a conical white stone which once served as a seamark assisting mariners who were navigating the hazardous waters of the Swinge.
