Codger fort, Fontburn

Codger fort is near to Rothley Lake, Fontburn (and quite close to the unique 'Goats on the Roof' cafe).  It was erected by Sir Walter Blackett after the Jacobite rising of 1745, probably to demonstrate his loyalty. The fort contained six cannon and would have proved a serious obstacle to any invading forces.
