    With a very sunny day and at a loose end i decided to hop the bus and head down to check out the western defenses of plymouth.
    The defenses date from the 1860 and some had been modified for ww2 usage.
    The 1st bit i came to was the ww2 anti aircraft battery did not give this much of a look as had a long walk ahead of me

    Then from there onto the battery at Picklecombe looks like some of the site is used for stores for fishing gear and the nearby fort was locked solid

    The only accessible shell store of the day, the shell lifts are there just very damaged

    The area is covered in military marker stones. Makes it easy to figure out where the defenses where
