In the southeast corner of a walled enclosure stood a fifty-five by forty-five foot rectangular tower, four stories tall. Smaller round towers stood at the other three corners, one of them sporting a metal windmill whirling at its peak to keep the reservoir filled. The gate ran in beside the main keep, with portcullis and drawbridge, and a dry moat full of barbed wire and angle iron surrounded the whole.
The wall was crenellated and half the main keep-tower's height, and it enclosed an acre and a half. The fighting platform on the inside of the curtain wall ended a dozen feet short of the tower's second story. The gaps were covered by removable footbridge that ended in thick steel doors.
The top of the tower was a featureless rectangle covered in asphalt paving, broken only by the trapdoor and a metal chimney in the middle of the eastern side, and by the turntable-mounted throwing engines crouching under their tarpaulin at each corner. A full-scale metal drawbridge joined the ground floor of the tower to the courtyard over a ditch bristling with sharpened rust-reddened angle itinerant surrounded the tower-keep on the inside.
Houses and barracks and workshops lined the inside of the wall, along with a chapel and the kitchens, all built in thickly plastered and whitewashed cinder block. There were paved pathways, but most of the courtyard was traveled dirt.
