Civil Hospital Battery
|Civil Hospital Battery|
|Part of Fortifications of Gibraltar|
|Owner||Ministry of Defence|
This battery was south of the Moorish Castle and in 1859 it had six guns. This battery would have been called a "retired" battery as it was well away from Gibraltar Harbour. These batteries were harder for an eneny to target and their increased height on the slopes of Gibraltar gave the gunners increased visibility and range.
