Tilbury Fort

This fort in south-east England is this country's finest example of continental style fortifications. Started in 1670 by Bernard de Gomme on the site of a small 16thc blockhouse it wasn't finished until the 1680s. Wiki entry here
I did a Napoleonic reenactment here in the early 90s - it was great fun rowing around the moat.
