12-pdr Battery, Salvator Bastion

Posted on January 8, 2024 / 5
Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : Malta

Salvator Bastion overlooks the entrance Marsamxett Harbour and lies opposite to Fort Tigne.  In June 1892 plans were drawn up to mount a pair of 12-pdr Q.F. guns on the North East corner of the bastion.  Provision was also made for a magazine and shell store.  It is not believed that this battery was ever built, but a site visit makes it hard to confirm this because it was converted a park and later a children’s play area.
