Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : Scotland

North Sutor 9.2-inch Battery had a pair of guns mounted in  ‘tear drop’ shaped gun pits.  The Battery was constructed in 1913, and was similar in design to the 9.2-inch Battery at South Sutor.  A pari of Defence Electric Lights were built on the foreshore below the battery.

In 1939 the Battery was remodelled to mount two 6-inch BL guns.  The old 9.2-inch magazines were used for the new 6-inch guns, with an escape hatch leading out to the old gun pits.

This 9.2-inch Battery was adjacent to a Battery with four 4-inch Q.F. guns mounted in pairs.
