In 1860, the Royal Commission for the defence of the United Kingdom put forward a recommendation that two powerful gun batteries were installed at Burntwick and Oakham with a boom between them. These forts were eventually built at Hoo and Darnet Ness, the latter housing nine 9” guns and three 7” guns. It was complete and operational by 1872.
