View across the mouth of Budle Bay from inside the concrete gun emplacement NU1635 : WWII gun emplacement, Budle Bay. The iron setting for the gun is still visible in the floor of the concrete shelter. It may have housed a four-inch ex-naval gun, with a range of around nine miles and was protected by infantry from ancillary fire trenches nearby.
