Tovey Battery is one of the three 6 ins Batteries built to cover the Western Side of the Rock, particularly the close approaches to the harbour.

Between 1909 and 1911 this battery was built to mount two 6-ins Mark VII guns. The plans below show the details of the battery.

In 1943 it would appear that there was still 6-ins guns at the battery from records concerning the changing of one of the barrels. It is possible that the record is a typographical error.

By WW2 this battery had mounted two 4-ins BL guns on CP1 Mountings according to the fort log but it is not clear when the ordinance was changed. The Battery can be visited by the underground works are now sealed.
