Looking across the rifle range butts at the western end of the moat leading from the North Centre Bastion to the Inner Bridge of the North Entrance. The doorway leads to the East Moat running down the side of the Detached Bastion.
The above photo appears in "The Moats of Dead Man`s Island in Winter" video slideshow which shows scenes from the snow-covered floor of the moats connecting the North Entrance to the North Centre Bastion. The photos were taken during the winter of 2010.
"Dead Man's Island" is a local name for the Detached Bastion which is often considered part of the North Centre Bastion and is connected to it by the South Caponier.
These partially-preserved ruined locations are part of an extensive Victorian and Napoleonic defence system embedded into the Western Heights above the town of Dover, Kent, UK, and are English Heritage sites.
