Title Leupe: Plan van de Bulle Bay, met een project van een fortres.

The resolution of the States-General of 9 October 1743 instructed the construction at the Bullen Bay of a newly designed stronghold of the same larger type as the Estates-General desired for Sint Kruis Bay, Porto Marie, Sint Michiel Bay and Piscadera Bay. On this map we see the battery next to the fort that is still to be realised and indicated with dotted lines.

North is upper left.

Scale-bar of 140 Rhineland Rods = 320 ‘strepen’.
