On the way to Coalhouse Fort, just past where Station Road joins Princess Margaret Road, to the left and hidden behind the houses, is the remains of the East Tilbury / Coalhouse Battery. Built 1890-91 it was disarmed and decommissioned by 1930 and sold to a local landowner. Trespassers are highly unwelcome. I snuck in there on a couple of occasions during the mid-70's (I estimate sometime between 1974 and 1976) and up until now I considered the photos of very low value. However, it's 40 years later and even the worst photos gain a certain nostalgic charm, so here they are. I'm pretty certain most of them are of the Battery, but a couple may have been of the Fort (I've only go scribbled numbers on the back to go on).
