Grenville Battery

Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : England

Grenville Battery was built within the old Maker No.4 Redoubt on Maker Heights.

Between 1887 and 1890 two 12.5-inch 38 ton RML guns were mounted on the south flank of the Redoubt facing the entrance to Plymouth Sound.  In 1899 these RMLs were replaced by three 4.7-inch Q.F. guns.  These guns remained operational until the interwar years.

Immediately adjacent to Grenville Battery is Marker Battery and the name of the two batteries is often confused.
