Efford Emplacement
Efford Emplacement
"Efford Emplacement to the south of Efford Fort survives in the form of an earthwork rampart topped by three earthen traverses, each of which held two guns. It was an open earthwork battery sited across a small valley between Efford Fort and Laira Battery, facing due east and commanding the chicane approach to the sally port over which it is built. Built in 1869 to mount 4 64-pounders, it was later armed with six 8-inch rifled muzzle-loaders. Much of it is now covered over and infilled.
