Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

Here, you can see the impressive view from the walls of Dunbar Battery.
The Battery, completed in 1781, was built on Lamer Island to protect the Old Harbour & the town of Dunbar from privateers and invaders. Sometime later, c.1870, a two-storey hospital was built within the walls and in 1910, Dunbar Red Cross took over the hospital.

It is very much a ruin now but has been partially restored to make it safe for tourists and as a place to hold events.

The Battery is in a wonderful position to overlook both the sea and the harbour.

From my photograph you can see a couple paddleboarding. The view towards the harbour is quite different and I will show you as a workshop here .

I will; also add a worksop showing something of the Battery's interior here .

Have a great week, Bev
