AbstractThis is a short account of the context and observations of an initial field survey and interpretation of government aerial photos and survey maps of some postwar British defence structures built along the land border of Hong Kong when it was a colony. With a view to promoting the conservation of these structures – now disused, but with good potential for cultural tourism and history education – as Hong Kong’s built heritage, this note covers military roads, “MacIntosh Forts”, observation posts, helipads, barbed wire fences, foxholes, barracks and a firing range along the border with China.
