The fortifications and bastions provided protection, a lookout and shelter during Fort Langley's early years and many of them faced the Fraser River - the main means of approach.

The Bastions - the wooden huts along Fort Langley's fortifications - were used as lookout stations and temporary housing for colonists. Fort Langley had at least three bastions, two of which overlooked the main approach to the fort - the river to protect it.
