Interesting history of the site and pictures of the gun being fired. Lots of bird poo on the smaller gun. Not many other visitors.

Well worth a visit just to see this magnificent huge gun which needed 35 men to service it. You can still see part of the tracks leading down to the magazine further down. Beautiful coastal views.

There is not much to see here except this massive gun. The British only made 15 guns of this size. Two of them were installed in the fortifications of Gibraltar in 1883. When more modern weapons bypassed this gun, it was too costly to demolish,...More
