    The last two weekends i have had to go to Weymouth so both times i popped over to Portland to have a look around. Last Saturday I visited High Angle Battery The rifle ranges. And this Saturday i visited East Wear Battery. There just seems to be more and more stuff too explore each time. So looks like i will have to go back for a 3rd time :)

    The High Angle Battery is a derelict fort built in 1892 on the Isle of Portland in Dorset, England. The battery was built as part of Britain's Coastal Defences in 1892 and is located in a disused Portland Stone quarry at the northern end of the island.

    East Wear Battery.

    East Wear Battery is a gun battery to the east of the Verne. The battery was built in the 1860s as a result of the Royal Commission to guard the new Portland harbour and Royal Navy institutions on the island. Five open batteries were built housing 20 9" and 10" RMLs. In 1900 they were replaced by 3 6" guns, and again by 2 9.2" by World War II.
