Wrights Hill Fortress

For many years the Wrights Hill Fortress was one of the best kept treasures of Wellington. Judging by the number of people I know whom I ran into up there today, it is now more well known.

They only open to the public five times a year, which works really well. Most years I will govisit at least once, normally to show someone around who ha snot seen it before. I especially enjoy the irony that the big gun cannon that was installed there, was sold in 1960 to Japan 🙂

A few photos of the various views from Wrights Hill are below.

A great view of Wellington from the lookout. The weird thing about this photo is I was meant to be in it, and the photographer insists that they had it aimed straight at me. Her theory is that somehow I am invisible to cameras!
