Description: Towards the left of the photo are the huts providing accommodation for the 80 or more soldiers manning the battery; these make use of an eighteenth century redoubt. There are four gun emplacements laid out in a horse-shoe arrangement, each surrounded by an earthwork. Behind these is a rectangular building which is the site command post; on either side of this building are two later gun emplacements, making a total complement of six guns. This is unusual: the standard layout was for four 3.7 inch guns.
