Great images here of Plymouth's Efford Fort, before it was all overgrown, large calibre artillery on the range at Staddon Heights in 1908 (now golf course).the mound on the left one of the still existing rifle firing positions facing the still there Butt, Jennycliff Cafe c pre 1960s?built within the gun positions of Lord Howard's Battery & a super shot of the chequerboard paint work on Plymouth's Breakwater Fort, so painted so it would not be shot it by mistake by our own fleet and own coastal batteries, so an early hi-vis job! Andy Amor has been flying over Devon and Cornwall, lots of lovely aerials here: River Exe showing Parson & Clerk at Dawlish/Teignmouth, Dawlish Warren, Starcross and Exmouth...2, Goonhilly Earth Station, Bude...2, Tintagel..2..., Portwrinkle, Perranporth, Watergate Bay, Camel Estuary.Check it out, you don't need to belong to Face Book.First of all a stunning tribute to our Veterans of D Day and all other theatres by Wes Ashton who has the SHADOWS OF OUR PAST Facebook page, well worth a visit. This image below is to me, one of the best, if not the best I have ever seen on this theme.Next is another busy and hectic scene on the pebble beach of MOUNT BATTEN to the east of PLYMOUTH with STAMFORD FORT looking down from above.Now we are going to but a ticket on the public foot ferry from TURNCHAPEL, across the CATTEWATER to PHOENIX WHARF, PLYMOUTH, even today you can do this trip, but with a slightly different pick up and put down location.
