The sign says here that the ' construction of Fort Aan Het Pampus was a cause of disagreement between the army and the government. The army saw no good in the structure because it considered the defense of the Zuiderzee to be a task of the navy and they didnt expect warships to be able to negotiate the shallow Zuiderzee anyway.
The politicians pressed ahead though the fort Aan Het Pampus was constructed in 1897. With the closing off of the Zuiderzee, now the IJsselmeer, in 1932 the fort lost its already doubtful reason for existence.'
