York Redoubt

York Redoubt National Historic Site of Canada

York Redoubt is a National Park in Canada that was once used to protect the shorelines on Canada in case of an attack during world war 2. “York Redoubt National Historic Site of Canada is comprised of a large, cleared plateau on the west side of Halifax’s inner harbour opposite McNabs Island and a gun battery and searchlight positions located close to sea level, reached by a path.

The redoubt contains some 27 buildings, related structures, and armament developed over 150 years. The upper portion of the redoubt is located high above wooded cliffs, overlooking the entrance to Halifax harbour which it has protected since the late 18th century”.
