The Portland Breakwater Fort is a 19th-century fort, built between 1868-1875 to defend Portland Harbour. It is located on the outer breakwater of Portland Harbour in Dorset, England. A Grade II Listed building since 1978, the fort is not open to the public and remains derelict. On the opposite side of the next stretch of the breakwater is the Portland Breakwater Lighthouse.
