Raglan's Battery was one of the first set of retired batteries which were proposed by General Sir John Jones. These "retired" batteries were the first to be set away from the shoreline in order that they could get greater range by taking advantage of the increased altitude of the Rock of Gibraltar. In addition the batteries were more difficult for the enemy to spot. Jones also recommended similar batteries at the Civil Hospital and the Jones' Battery.
