An overview of Tung Chung Fort

Tung Chung Fort, referred to as the Tung Chung Suocheng (Tung Chung Battalion City) in the Qing dynasty, was the naval headquarters of the Right Battalion of Dapeng. The carved granite slab above the entrance gives the date of the Fort as 1832. In 1898 when the New Territories was leased to Britain, the Fort was evacuated by the Qing authorities, then occupied, first as a police station, and then by Wa Ying College, the Rural Committee Office and the Tung Chung Public Primary School. Tung Chung Public Primary School was closed in 2003.

Tung Chung Fort was declared a monument in 1979.
