Dropped in on way home from Jess Glynne concert following a fantastic stay in Warkworth. Interesting collection and history, ran by local volunteers all ex service personnel each with a tale to tell. Lots to see and a small cafe on site.

Lovely clean beach and surrounding are the battery is open at weekends and for local events it is staffed by local volunteers and if you're interested in history worth a visit.

It might only be manned and open on Sundays but it doesn't matter that much as there are so many really good boards explaining the purpose and use of each building.
