Island fort for sale at £150,000

The fort has its own jetty, but little else

If you are struggling to get on the property ladder in the UK, how about buying a fort just off the coast?

Stack Rock Fort, about 800 yards off the west Wales coast near Milford Haven, is for sale for £150,000.

The 19th Century fort - complete with a couple of cannons - dates back from the time of Napoleon, when it was initially built as a defence for the river Haven.

I wonder if it will withstand exploding LNG tankers? There's some kind of new LNG facility being established in Milford at the moment - very controversial (mainly for safety reasons) - basically LNG (gas) is going to be shipped in by tanker - the solution to our diminishing natural gas reserves here in the UK.

By the way, Milford Haven is probably the poorest, most depressing and most polluted town in West Wales - dominated by two huge oil refineries run by Texaco and Elf (remember the Sea Empress oil disaster that happened on the approach to Milford?).
