Google Earth Plug-in: Cape Sileirro 6-in Vickers battery near Vigo

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


This is set on a steep hill overlooking the sea, the 4 guns (2 in 1941, 1 in 1942, 4th post-war) in a line stepped one above the other. A defended barracks and stores was set in a hollow behind the hill, giving underground tunnel access to the fire control tower and all four gun positions.

The guns had been sealed in their emplacements with concrete so all one could see from the outside was the barrels sticking out of a grey wall. These emplacements were excavated in the rock, with concrete bunkers for overhead protection, and ammunition storage behind each gun.
