Fort Putnam is really a screen round a farmhouse, with battlements, a turret and a large church window, and with details similar to those of the tower at the castle.
Said to have been so named to commemorate the success of the American War of Independence (the 11th Duke was apparently a supporter) and was named after General Israel ‘Puffing’ Putnam.
