A World War I gun-emplacement for a 4-inch QF (quick-firing ) gun, location to be confirmed.

This World War I coast battery is situated down a steep slope just W of Charlies' Seat.

There are emplacements for 2 x 4-inch QF (quick firing) guns with underground magazines immediately to the rear. In addition there are two searchlight emplacements below. The entrances to the magazines still show camouflage paint in good condition. The remains of the accommodation camp for the crew can still be seen on the ground above the battery.
