Full description

Torbay HER record (SMR record). SDV361984.

The Artillery Training Services (ATS) hut was built at the head of Fishcombe Cove, outside the strict perimeter of the battery as defined by the walls. A typical wartime single-storey structure of brick with corner and side buttresses and a corrugated asbestos roof (now iron) with steel shuttering to the windows. All sections of the battery undertook training here. [1]

Later used as a council store, and now leased to the Brixham Battery Gardens Heritage Group (BBGHG) who are intending to turn it into a heritage interpretation centre. Plans and elevations at 1:50 [2] Ssome wartime notice boards remain. [3]
