WS117 Gate – Devil’s Gap Battery Green Lane, Gibraltar
Posted on January 25, 2016 / 650
Zone : Upper Rock
poi type : Gate
Location :
Description : Description
Condition : Good

Gate on the main road (Green Lane) leading to the Upper Rock past Devil’s Gap Battery.

This Gate is believed to have been built about 1880, but this is not known for certain.  At about this time there was a palisade or unclimable fence built around the west and south west side of the Rock to prevent people entering.  Sections of this fence still survive, including near Willis Magazine, in front of St Gap Battery and towards Queen Lookout (best remaining section).  This fence roughly followed the 400 feet contour map.  There are separate entries in respect of these sections of fence.
