Fog Battery, Lundy Island DP196574

Fog Battery, Acklands Moor, Lundy Island, Devon. The fog signal station, constructed by Trinity House in 1863 when the limitations of the Old Lighthouse (constructed 1819-20), when thick fog covered the island, were recognised. It was constructed of dressed, roughly-coursed granite, with 2ft high walls and a corrugated iron roof bound with iron hoops. In the event of accidental explosion, this construction would allow the force to be taken by the roof rather than the walls. The idea of the battery was to warn shipping off the rocks by means of ten-minute interval firings with an eighteen pound canon. View from south east
