On the Stockade Level is plenty to see, it had plenty of residents and facilities up to and during WWII. On the 7th of April I wanted to make a thorough visit of the Fort Mills Stockade Level. Another reason I wanted to find the Half-moon Concrete Shelter again and mark the location this time. I found a one of a kind concrete bunker which I had never seen before.
