View of the Countess Fort in Kingsgate, on the Isle of Thanet in Kent. The print is a light mezzotint with etched details. This is probably one of the many follies erected by Henry Lord Holland, on his estate at Kingsgate in the late 18th century. He built himself a mansion here in the 1760s called Holland House. It was fashionable to decorate a garden with follies such as medieval ruins or classical temples. The follies he built here dotted along the coast were highly eccentric.
