The fort was saved from falling into state of total dereliction as a result of work undertaken under the Manpower Services Scheme and the efforts of volunteers. The relentless dedication of the team of individuals and the assistance provided by the Weymouth Civic Society has resulted in the fort becoming one of the best preserved forts of its kind.
Stuart Morris has recorded the redevelopment of the site in two videos which may be seen here and here.
