WS140 Ragged Staff Demi Bastion
Posted on January 8, 2016 / 609

This bastion provided protection to Ragged Staff Gate and then along Line Wall behind the dockyard.

In 1859 the bastion mounted 1 x 68 pounder on the Head and on the Line Wall Flank, 4 x 68 pounders and 2 x 8ins shell guns.  By 1886 there were 3 x 64 pounder RML guns on wooden traversing carriages.

 

During WW2, some of the embrasures of the Line Wall Flanking guns were bricked up to convert them into gun positions.
