Spikes atop the door and also pounded into the face of the panel on the inside
Open doors seen from inside the fort
The left half shows the door that when closed faces the outside of the fort. The door on the right side faces inside when closed.

What textures, shapes you've captured today.
I suppose the spikes didn't always work either. That would have been a frightful way to live.
Fantastic macro image!
Thanks for the comment on my blog and have a nice day!
Excellent photographs, EG ... they put one at the "scene." You'd almost think residents of the fort didn't want certain folks visiting them!
I'm not "back," but will post on occasion here and there.
Thanks for caring!
Nasty looking spikes! I like the pattern created by the metal in the door.
Great texture in these photos! great captures!
Not too many home invasions here!
Alarming, but rather beautiful all the same. You always find something out of the ordinary.
Excellent shots, I love the spikes and wood/metal texture on the gate.
great old fort doors,
Yes, I'd hesitate before climbing over that gate. Great shots, all.
What a sturdy structure! I love the different textures, and the lovely shades of grey and brown. Great shots!
Great textures and color tones. I wouldn't try climbing over the gate.
There's something that appeals to me about the huge boards and large bolts used in forts. Very nice!
Fortified gate is terrifying, while patterns on wood made by metal is pleasing to see. No one would dare to climb over it.
Ouch! Great texture!
Fabulous textures and details!
Defences make for beautiful photography!
wow that is one place I would love to visit. Great textures and great shapes.
Well done! Menacing and sturdy! Have a grand day! Cathy
Awesome! I love the colors and the textures.
Wow a blast from the past. Great shots!
I was looking at all the spikes on the gate, and thinking how afraid they must be of invaders, and then I read that it is a fort! Well, of course! Can you imagine living in a fort like that?
Impressive doors... and photos! :)
These are wonderful captures! So interesting.
I really like to see this kind of Fort, amazingly built. Thanks for the visit!
I have never seen any gates with those steel/iron spikes before. Of course, I have not seen many historical places either. Sure would not want to fall on one of those.
Love all the textures of the old wood.
These are awesome shots!
Amazing photographs of the gates... sturdy... strong...
That's awesome! Would love to learn more about the history of how and why this came to be built. ~Jeanne
That actually looks a bit medieval- great shots!
A good variation of photos here on your blog.
These gates and walls ring a bell for for a lad brought up in the 70s on a diet of cowboy films - they're just how you'd imagine and American fort to be (although I do not you're in Canada)
This is a real fort!
Those are some seriously impressive doors!
