Brixham Battery Heritage Centre Group wish to express its solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Their courage and resolve in the face of aggression from Russia has in many ways paralleled the struggle faced by Britain in 1939 when we stood alone against Nazism. Brixham Battery Heritage Centre Group is an educational charity that provides information and insight into the trials and tribulations faced by both the armed forces and civilians during WW2. It is only by education of the true horrors of armed conflict that we can hopefully prevent future wars. It is for this reason that Brixham Battery will continue with its plans to hold Special Event Days this year.

We are a group of volunteers helping to restore the Brixham coastal defence Battery built in 1940, and to provide on-site information to the general public and other organisations. The group uses the Artillery Training Section (ATS) hut as it's Education Centre and Museum.

The dedicated group of volunteers maintains and have restored the grounds of Brixham Battery.  This includes the A.T.S building, War Shelter, Ammunition Tunnels, Generator Rooms, Gun Emplacements, Battery Observation Post (B.O.P), Pill Box and other structures around the site.

As well as maintaining the Museum and grounds, we educate schools and the general public about the history and operation of the site during World War 2.  We are a Registered Charity, our number is 1082171.
