  Fort Amherst at St John's, Newfoundland
by victorwkf

This old fort is located on the cliff overlooking the Narrows, which is the entrance to St John's harbour from the Atlantic Ocean. At this place, there are remnants of world war 2 gun batteries and a lighthouse built in 1810. Fort Armherst can also be clearly seen on top of Signal Hill, which is located at the other side of the Narrows.
