Fort Largs at Taperoo is one of only two forts built to defend South Australia. The other, Fort Glanville, is further down Adelaide’s coastline at Semaphore. Both forts have great heritage significance as evidence of nineteenth century defence strategy and technology.
Now, there is a new risk to the fort. Not the Russians, but a State Government proposal to sell off the Fort Largs site to developers, including the historic fortifications and associated buildings.
We seek your support for pressing the Government to make more effective arrangements for the permanent protection of Fort Largs before the site is sold for development.
You can contact the Deputy Premier’s office directly or join the Facebook Page Say NO to selling Fort Largs to show your support. Local residents can also press the Port Adelaide and Enfield Council to take a stand to protect this irreplaceable piece of South Australian heritage.
