An association of volunteers for the preservation of the fort of Peigney

Splitting wood

In France, an « association » is a sort of charity or club with a defined legal status.

The association « Fort de Peigney » was created at the end of 2014 with the aim of preserving, restoring, and promoting the fort « Constance Chlore », which belongs to the town of Peigney.

The work of securing and clearing the site, began in February 2015. Overall the fort is in good condition and the rooms are relatively dry, but there are a lot of trees and undergrowth to be removed on the ramparts. In 2016 we will offer guided tours and use the fort for various exhibitions and shows, including non-military ones.

Works already completed by September 2017

  • Clearing of the defensive banks to the right and left of the entrance, as far as the magazines.
  • Cleaning of the guard post.
  • Securing of a room in the guard post (fitting of a door, windows and locks).
  • Clearing of a path along the interior ditch.
  • The securing of guardrails on the bridge.
  • Fitting of metal grilles on the wells.
  • Cleaning the officers' barracks and preparing a room for exhibitions.
  • Cutting the trees and undergrowth on the ground above the officers' barracks.
  • Fitting hand rails for access to the first floor in the troop barracks.

Works to do in the following months

  • Finish the roof of the guard post.
  • Repoint the stones in the walls of the guard post.
  • Masonry of the guard post and various locations.
  • Improving the drainage of the inner ditch arond the coffer dams.

Normaly the volunteers work on the site on Friday afternoons and all day Saturday. Certain members, notably those who are retired, work at the fort virtually every day of the week.
