No.1 Bastion, Sheerness
« Reply #1 on: March 22, 2011, 18:43:41 »
This bastion has the most remains of the Sheerness Lines.  On here you can find a remaining feature from each time the bastion was needed (although nothing remains of the Grand Magazine).


Three early gun emplacements


Three victorian magazines can be found on this bastion, one is still sealed


This one is difficult to access and has later water tanks within


And this is the third which fed a 9.2" gun. 


9.2" emplacement




Beside this is an observation post




Also on this battery are two WWII gun houses, one of which has a shelter below


The holes in the walls were apparently made to get the guns back out???


Down to the shelter
