    Not for the fainthearted. Be careful, this is a VERY dangerous place to visit. The entrance ( which is obvious to anyone who visits the area is a death trap ) and the battery itself is sliding off the edge of the cliff.

    The redoubt was built in 1856 and provided a coastal battery and beach defence for Freshwater bay.

    Heres a few of mine, most were similar to Marks, so no point in repeating them;

    Day or night, the cliff is very high and dangerous.
