Ebrington, including the regenerated Ebrington Square, is enclosed within a Star Fort, and is the centre piece of the site.

Flanked on three sides by heritage buildings, it has unrivalled views across the river. From a heritage and tourism perspective, the discovery of the Star Fort, being a popular military structure in Victorian times, is extremely significant as it now makes Derry the only known walled city with two sets of historic walls. 

Much of the original wall is still largely intact (ca. 70%) and conservation works continue to restore the remaining wall and 14 listed buildings, as much as possible, to their original state. Importantly, both walls are now connected by the Peace Bridge.  The base was extended to the south in 1875 and to the east in 1895 to its existing footprint of 26 acres (14 hectares).
