Hurst Castle: WWII emplacement
Hurst Castle: WWII emplacement
This emplacement is on the roof of Hurst Castle at the base of the WWII control tower (seen in SZ3189 : Hurst Castle interior, seen from western end. I'm not sure if it was for a gun, a searchlight, or for gun directing equipment. The Needles in the background. (I cheekily walked on part of the roof that is out of bounds to get this shot)
