Next is another busy and hectic scene on the pebble beach of MOUNT BATTEN to the east of PLYMOUTH with STAMFORD FORT looking down from above.
First of all a stunning tribute to our Veterans of D Day and all other theatres by Wes Ashton who has the SHADOWS OF OUR PAST Facebook page, well worth a visit. This image below is to me, one of the best, if not the best I have ever seen on this theme.Off to PENLEE POINT now in SE Cornwall, note the steam powered foghorn and the large concrete steps that formed part of the landing stage for the guns at PENLEE BATTERY.Lastly one of my favorite areas, BRIDGEND between NEWTON FERRERS and NOSS MAYO near PLYMOUTH, DEVON. Very high res photo of BOVISAND and FORT BOVISAND and the STADDON HEIGHT DEFENCES from c1930/40s.Great images here of Plymouth's Efford Fort, before it was all overgrown, large calibre artillery on the range at Staddon Heights in 1908 (now golf course).the mound on the left one of the still existing rifle firing positions facing the still there Butt, Jennycliff Cafe c pre 1960s?built within the gun positions of Lord Howard's Battery & a super shot of the chequerboard paint work on Plymouth's Breakwater Fort, so painted so it would not be shot it by mistake by our own fleet and own coastal batteries, so an early hi-vis job!
