The Fort along Middenweg was finished in 1914, as was the Fort along Jisperweg, making them the final Defence Line fortresses to reach completion. A remarkable feature of the fort is the cleaning facility, a hall outfitted with a water reservoir at the ceiling and tiltable wash basins – a novelty in those days. Along the access road to the fortress you can find a prime example of a stone fort watchman’s house. The grass atop the fortress is mowed twice a year, giving rise to grasslands that are rich in flowers.
The function of the Fort along Middenweg was to defend the access that was formed by the Middenweg and Zuiderweg roads. In 1885 the fort was completed as a defendable earthwork. It was not until 1914 that the fortress reached its final completion, though, when the construction of the shellproof building was finished.
The fort is not open to the public and is part of a nature reserve.
