  • A really great opportunity to walk around and see close up remains of the wartime cannons. Some are more intact than others. It really brings home the scale of the weaponry used and the history that sits behind it. New updated parking and visitor facilities. Excellent afternoon out.
  • Impressive and somewhat creepy building due some decay over it's long lasting history.
