Cumberland Flank Battery

Posted on November 15, 2020 / 11
Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : Gibraltar

Cumberland Flank Battery was built after the Jones Report of 1840 to provide fire towards the North.  Old images show that this was originally a barbette battery and that it was eventually covered in to provide light casemates.  The battery remains, with some World War 2 modifications, but is now used as garages.  Immediately to the rear lies Scud Hill Battery, which was originally known as Cumberland Battery.
