Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I am looking forward to the day when we will be free to explore our own countries and those of our friends, however, in the meantime, it is safer to stay away from others, to explore just your memories and stay safe.

Yesterday, I showed two types of fishermen and today, another fisherman. 😆

The photograph of the fisherman was taken from what is sometimes referred to as the Fort but is officially The Battery.

The Dunbar Battery was originally built as a civil defensive bastion in 1781. In the 19th and 20th C it housed a hospital for infectious diseases and a military hospital during World War I. Whilst latterly it became a ruin, the structure remained full of potential due to its stunning location on an island within the harbour, its rich history and intriguing topography.

The island on which it is built is connected to the mainland by a lifting bridge. The battery is freely accessible to the public 24 hours. The original battery was a red-sandstone structure with embrasures for sixteen guns. The entrance facing the town is constructed from blonde sandstone with an arched entrance.

The Battery has been made perfectly safe with some interesting additions like the mirrored cubes, I showed earlier and some steps named after the different shipping areas for weather reports. (I will add that as a workshop.)

As you can see, from the walls of the Battery, there are amazing views out to the Firth of Forth and photographic opportunities for spotting fishermen!

Keep safe and positive, Bev :-)
