Fort Brecqhou, Channel Islands

Have any Channel Island-based ribsters got any good pictures of the Barclay Brothers', Fort Brecqhou?

I have been fascinated by the construction of such a large scale building on such a small island ever since hearing about it. A Google search brings up very little photographic evidence, so I though I would try you guys.

If that fascinates you do a search for Iles saint-marcouf and have a look at the fort on there. Incredible bit of engineering.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
