A decommissioned fort, constructed during the First World War, is being auctioned off for the first time, a report in the BBC said. The fort is situated in the middle of the ocean and the starting bid is just $60,000, the outlet further said. The Bull Sand Fort, built between 1915 and 1919, is nearly 5 kilometres from the mainland. The sale of the fort is being handled by Right Move, which says on its website that the property is freehold and in need of refurbishment.
“A grade II listed sea fort constructed between 1915-1919 for naval sea defence during World War 1 and used in World War 2 (works were not fully completed until after World War 1 had ended), in need of refurbishment throughout, located in the Humber Estuary (in the UK). Vacant,” according to the description of the property on the website.
“The fort includes three floors with basement and magazine below sea level and central two-storey observation tower. Fresh water supply is available at the fort via an artesian well. Externally there is a balcony and jetty,” it further said.
