We are now almost exclusively taking working parties out to stay on the fort over a weekend, since this is a more fuel and time efficient way of working. It is hoped to increase this to stays of up to a week, in future.Numbers are limited but more places are becoming available as facilities improve.Conditions are still very basic and you should regard it as a camping trip.You will need to provide your own food but we provide the refreshments.
The fort can be a dangerous environment unless volunteers take thegreatest care. Lifejackets must be worn on the trip to and from thefort (provided) and especially during the transfer on and off the ship.Volunteers must work in pairs on the fort and be conscious of the fragility of some sections of the landing stage. Safe areas are marked.A safety briefing will be held on the forward deck of the ship on the outward journey.It is regretted that no indemnity against accidents and losses can beinsured by the Trust due to the prohibitive cost.
