poi type : Crew Shelter
Location :
Condition : Good

WWII Shelter at Shirley Cove.  This would appear to have a larger concrete lined nissan hut which was possibly a crew shelter.  There is a blast wall covering the entrance.  There is a sign showing the structure was built by the Black Watch in WW2.

Adjacent is a small concrete structure which may have been a magazine, the roof is missing.

There is a smaller platform towards the sea which may have been for a gun or Z Battery.  No holdfast could be found.

 

There is a defence position to the rear of these features, SS23-1
