News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

No.1 Emplacement which also houses the magazines for both guns.


No.2 Emplacement.

Point of note, the remaing lookout on capel battery, was actual built for copt point, not capel, capels lookout is the missing one which is half over the cliffe
