Reculver Towers and Roman Fort N080988

RECULVER TOWERS AND ROMAN FORT, Kent. Aerial view of Roman Regulbium, a Saxon Shore fort and naval base for the Classis Britannica - the Roman fleet based in Britain. Part of the fort has suffered coastal erosion, but remains of the landward walls are still visible on the ground. The outline of the fort (with the remains of the later church at its centre) are much clearer from the air

EDITORS COMMENTS
This aerial view captures the historic Reculver Towers and Roman Fort in Kent, England. Known as Regulbium during the Roman era, this site served as a vital Saxon Shore fort and naval base for the Classis Britannica – the formidable Roman fleet stationed in Britain. Although time and coastal erosion have taken their toll on parts of the fort, remnants of its landward walls can still be seen on the ground. However, it is from above that one truly appreciates the grandeur of this ancient stronghold. The outline of the fort becomes much clearer when viewed from an aerial perspective, revealing fascinating details such as a later church situated at its center. Damian Grady's expert photography skillfully captures both history and natural beauty in this remarkable image. The juxtaposition between man-made structures and nature's relentless force is evident here; while some sections succumb to erosion over time, others stand strong against these elements. The Reculver Towers and Roman Fort are not just relics frozen in time; they serve as a testament to human ingenuity and resilience throughout centuries. This photograph invites viewers to reflect upon our shared past while marveling at how these ancient ruins continue to inspire awe today.
