Exmouth New Battery

Remains of the New Battery revealed after the 2014 storms

The New Battery, located close to the old Lifeboat Station, was completed in 1862. It contained a keeper’s cottage, an ammunition magazine, three thirty-two pounder guns and one eight inch mortar, and was used by the Exmouth Volunteer Artillery. It is said to have been demolished in the 1920s, or possibly in 1908 leaving only the storeroom.
