Before turning left at the bottom of the main path from the Battery Observation Post, looking straight ahead is the remains of one of the various Rifle Positions on the site. This particular
one was designed to cover the sea shore at the bottom of the site. During the war there were no trees on the slopes down to the shore line which gave an unobstructed field of fire against intending enemy landing forces.
Another Rifle Position is located at the lower western corner of the site, half way down Fishcombe Road. As well as rifles, these posts were ideal for the Bren Machine Gun.
