A historic fort in St George’s may soon reopen to the public after a restoration project.The St George’s Foundation restored the Martello Tower and the nearby gunpowder magazine property at Ferry Point Park in St George’s.The foundation had asked for volunteers to join to help remove casuarina trees that threatened the historic structures, designed as platforms for artillery.A spokesman said: “The opening up of the Martello Tower for public viewing and tours is a priority. As collaboration is key to its mission, the St George’s Foundation contacted Francine Trott, curator for the Department of Parks, and it was quickly realised that the Department was also very interested in providing support for this project as it is a priority item in its budget.”
