Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : Atlantic Islands

Cottage Battery was originally known as Murdock’s Battery.  It was originally intended to mount a 6-inch BL gun here.  In 1888 as a stop gap a simple platform was built to mount two 7-inch Mark I RML guns.  This is a very simple battery overlooking the harbour of Georgetown below.

In 1890 two 6-inch BL guns were finally ordered for delivery the following years.  These two modern guns were to be mounted at Bedford Battery that lies immediately adjacent to Cottage Battery.
