HORNSEA EMERGENCY BATTERY

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of Hornsea coastal battery, an emergency battery built during the Second World War as part of Northern Command's coastal defences. Between October 1942 and May 1945 it is referenced as being armed with two 4.7-inch quick-firing Mk. V naval guns. Aerial photography from 1977 shows that the battery has been removed and the site is currently used as a caravan park. Remnants of brick and concrete are present on the beach at the base of the cliff. These are possibly the remains of battery buildings or structures destroyed by coastal erosion.
