Underground Magazines

The Princess Royal Fortress contains two underground magazines, the Princess Royal Battery and the Plantagenet Battery. The magazines were constructed in 1892 and were used to store cordite required to fire the large coastal guns that protected the harbour. Today you can wander through the magazine and experience the solid walls and original floors. Peer down into the underground chambers if you dare!
