Already knackered from the previous venture, we headed up to this place which also is just around the corner.


I'd like to say a quick thanks to hoppymat for driving, and to his bird for Batteries and Assisting also both of you's for being my tunnel lighting bitches

so enough with the intro -

Originally constructed during the Victorian era, St. Martin's Battery was extensively rebuilt and updated during the Second World War. At the rear of the gun positions the Victorian brickwork is still clearly visible, along with the contemporary expense magazines. Directly behind the battery is the deep shelter. This was constructed originally as a main magazine to supply the battery guns, but was extensively lengthened during the war to become a deep shelter. The deep shelter is now in poor condition, many parts having suffered from smoke damage and collapse.

Any way enough yabbering; pictures!!
