Most Secret - Tippelbruder Defences 1692


Our archivist dug out a copy of a plan of 1692 showing the Tippelbruder defences. As you can see, they are strongest on the west and south-west but a moat does extend around the entire perimeter of the walls.

I thought the southwest with the star fort (A in the map) would be one of the strongpoints. :-)

You are right - my brain wasn't functioning yesterday and I managed to reverse east and west! Doh.

Thanks for pointing that out!
