The fort was used as warehouse complex from an unknown date until after 1974 and on 1-12-1950 as a gunpowder store. Later used by Eurometaal (Artillery Devices); in 1980/1983 still in use. Smalspoor was present for this.?

The facilities for a Detention and Residential Camp for political delinquents was partly added in 1946 but the fort was not used as a camp.?

Flora & Fauna are of great natural value. Due to the extreme temperature fluctuations on the bare fort grounds, you find obvious dune vegetation here. Some of these are: Stonecrop, Sand wall, Real Walstro, Ragwort and Rough Forget-me-not. You also see: Gypsywort, Red Water Speedwell and Creeping Jenny. The long-eared owl and freshwater prawn are also inhabitant of the park around the fort.
