This is a barbette gun battery facing west and north west.  The guns in this place could provide flanking fire against anyone attacking Grand Battery and well as direct fire along the front of the Norther Lines.

In 1859 there were 2 x 24lbs smooth bore guns and 1 x 24lbs Carronade on the walls here.

By 1886 this had been upgraded to 1 x 8 ins smooth bore Howitzer and 2 x 32lbs Smooth Boore.

A World War 2 Pillbox has been built on the North West Corner of the position.  See separate entry.

There is also an anti-tank gun emplacement/bunker at the base of the position. See separate entry.
