A structure comprising a semicircular platform enclosed by a low crenellated stone wall with extensive views north-west and south along the River Dart. The Battery appears to have been built in the early 19th century, perhaps as part of the defences of the Dart estuary constructed during the Napoleonic wars. It is shown on an estate map of 1839.
