Former gun emplacement and other buildings, Sinah Common Gun Site
Former gun emplacement and other buildings, Sinah Common Gun Site
The ruins of a World War 2 gun site, one of a coastal series protecting Portsmouth, lie next to Sinah Lake. The Sinah Common Gun Site, now a Scheduled Ancient Monument and part of the Sinah Common SSSI, had four gun emplacements, ammunition stores & command post. This view shows one of the two remaining gun emplacements which is in good condition; it has been converted into a seating area. The brick and concrete buildings in the background, adjacent to Ferry Road, also form part of the gun site. See also: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) (pdf).
