Rooke Battery buildings

The derelict battery can now be found on the Royal Anglian Way which is named after the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Anglian Regiment, who refurbished it in August 1969. The path leads up the west side to the top of the Rock passing by this battery and Hayne's Cave Battery.
This battery's in 1907 had a BL 9.2 inch gun Mk IX–X on a Mk. V mounting which was protected against severe damage because it had an underground magazine and shelter. The popular 9.2-inch guns were also installed high on the rock at Spur Battery, Breakneck Battery and similar locations. The gun is known to have still been here in 1928.
