The high-angle battery at Verne Quarry with The Verne citadel beyond
The high angle battery in the foreground was built in 1892 to counteract invasion and protect shipping in Portland Harbour. It was disarmed in 1906 and is now a scheduled ancient monument. The Verne fortress in the distance was also built to protect the harbour, and is now used as a prison.
