Overlooking Sandy Hill Bay, this old fort was the colonist and British took their final stand against an invading French Force in 1796. In the end, the French were defeated and thanks to "The Battle of Anguilla", the island remained part of the British Empire. In addition to this bit of history, the site also offers pretty nice views too.
