The explore :

The second explore of the day was the Newhaven emergency battery :)

We park in the carpark for Newhaven fort & then walk up the hill to the coastal watchtower,

The watchtower is made up of 3 massive gun holder & then a cost guard lookout

Sadly all the building including the plotting room was sealed up but was nice to just walk around the battery, we even saw someone BASE jump off the Cliffe too

The view from the battery over the beach was lovely as it was also a clear day


History : Newhaven Emergency Battery

This battery was constructed during WW2 to complement the guns at nearby Newhaven Fort. It is located on the cliff top just West of the fort and originally housed three guns with a number of auxiliary buildings located at the rear of the large concrete gun
