We are closing our research, for now; on the Castle Hill 6 inch battery and our new page dedicated to this wartime relic will be up dated very soon. The site is passed by thousands of people every year that walk up the hill past it where glorious view out to see are to be had. There have been mixed views about this structure in many published local history books with some even saying that it dates back to the Great War years; this simply isn't the case as it was instigated in November 1941 and completed ready for action by June 1943. Read the full story coming soon on our web page here!
