Lower Hope Battery

Posted on April 14, 2022 / 4
Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : England

Lower Hope Battery was built in 1898 at Lower Hope Point.  The Battery mounted two 12-pdr QF guns and was supported by two Defence Electric Lights.  The battery was enclosed with a wet ditch.

Very similar in basic design to the 6-pdr QF Battery at Coalhouse Fort.

The battery was lost to subsequent industrial development and all that remains in part of the wet ditch.
