South Shore Battery on Stonecutters was one of the earliest batteries completed with construction starting in 1885.  The battery was initially armed with:

  • Three 64-pdr RMLs
  • Two 6-pdr Hotchkiss QF guns
  • Three Gardner Machine Guns

By 1901 the old armament was obsolete and two 12-pdr QF guns were recommended and installed with two of the machine gun positions retained.  This 12-pdr QF battery remained operational until about 1910.
