Late 19th century rectangular (in plan) fort on the edge of the cliff, with a deep revetted ditch on three sides flanked by two polyground caponeres provided with loops for musketry. The open batter was thoroughly remodelled in the 1900s for heavier guns and remained in service until the end of World War I. It was dismantled and sold in 1932.
Magazines are below the battery and two ranges of single story barracks behind.
