The Battery Observation Post

Constructed in 1914 and extended during World War II, this was the Command Centre and range finding position for the Fort and the new 6 inch Mark VII guns. In 1943 it was extended to house the Searchlight Directing Station.

 

This building is also undergoing a full restoration to bring it back to World War II condition.
