The Battery has been hit hard by the lockdown, especially as over the winter we invested on an overhaul of the Museum, Education Centre and surrounding area and on top of that the site was constantly vandalised during the first lockdown.  Please be generous when visiting us as we rely TOTALLY ON PUBLIC DONATIONS...
 
Help us keep this Heritage Site alive...
 
Please be aware that due to Covid 19 guidance there will be a number of restrictions in place...please see our COVID 19 page for guidance on visiting the museum. Due to the increasing rise of Covid 19 face coverings MUST be worn when inside AND outside the museum site.  This also applies to visiting groups.  Please be mindful of the rule of 6.

 

Free Admission... but we rely completely on donations, so please be generous...the Battery has been hit especially hard due to the lockdown...

The museum, Education Centre and immediate grounds have all been re-vamped earlier this year to provide more room around the immediate site.  We are also pleased to announce we now have a genuine WW2 Anderson Shelter on site for visitors to see...

Museum is open on Sundays 2pm until 4pm in the first instance following easing of lockdown restrictions.  Please see our COVID 19 page for guidance on visiting the museum.  

March until November inclusive

If you are unsure please contact the Battery or check out our Facebook page. 

We are a dog friendly museum and site and you are very welcome to bring your dog (on a lead) to the museum. 

The Brixham Battery Heritage Group was founded in 1999, four years after the project was first started in 1995.

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.

 

It's not just the buildings, it's our volunteers that make it so special
