UR1-2 Position Finding Post

Immediately to the South of Devils Gap a position finding pedestal was established giving a clear view over the southern approaches to the harbour area.  This position finding pedestal is shown in plan of 1902 and 1941/2.

 

However, recent inspection shows that the original DF Pedestal has been built into a new wall that provides a new position.  The exact nature of this position is not know but there is a loophole covering the road and a concrete base with hold fasts in the centre for some instrument or weapon.  There is also a small ‘safe’ to the north of the small position, and a tiled platform  The exact nature/use of this addition is not known at this time.
