Title:BT Cable, Berry Head, Torbay: Results of a Watching Brief
Originator:Passmore, A.
Summary:A watching brief was carried out by AC archaeology during emergency repairs to the BT cable supplying buildings within Fort 3 at Berry Head, Brixham. The repairs were required following a lightning strike that had affected both telephone and electricity supplies to the lighthouse, coastguard station and café. Fort 3, a Scheduled Monument, is one of two Napoleonic-era fortifications constructed at Berry Head to strengthen the defences of the south coast in anticipation of a French attack. No finds or features were exposed.
