ABOUT EAST FORT BATTERY
According to the Durr Record, there should be eight 18-pounder cannon of Swedish origin on this cannon site.
A visit to this site in February 2013 found eight cannon on the site. Although one cannon was lying on the ground far away from an empty carriage, the general impression was that this site is well maintained.
