    Well this is my first upload so I'm expecting to get slated, but any helpful tips/info are always welcome.

    I haven't had my DSLR for long but I've been hooked to this site ever since I found it and have been itching to get out there and start exploring. I found this place by accident and have tried to find out some information on the internet as to the exact name but have had no luck. All I do know is that its just off of a coastal walk between crownhill bay and westlake bay in Plymouth, Devon. Any background information on this site would be greatly appreciated.

    The first thing I saw when I got there was what looks like a gun mount.

    I really wanted to see what was in this hatch but it was sealed down tight.

    Some of the original signs still manage to be seen despite how damp the walls were in places

    Some rough calculations scribbled on the wall

    Some of the old mechanisms for lifting the shells up to the gun operators.

    All of the areas were being reclaimed by nature but were easily accessible.

    Despite the damp, most of the paintwork was in remarkably good condition.

    I'm not really sure what this is, it looks like a shower tray but I know it's not. Any ideas?

    Finally the last picture which I noticed as I was about to leave. Is this likely to be the date that the installation was built? I couldn't decide as I believed these buildings to have been built for WW2?

    Thank you to everyone for being so patient while I got my shit together!
