The Torry Battery

 

The Torry Battery

P5-S1
1 hour
Outdoor
Cost: £40 

The entrance to the harbour has been defended for many centuries. Torry Point Battery has stood since 1860 and has a long and varied history. The focus of the visit is the Battery’s use during the Second World War. Pupils learn from photographs and original plans, using these as evidence of its use during the conflict. Their task is to match these with the visible remains of the present.

The tour begins on the Aberdeen shoreline searching for the remains of tank traps, investigating other structures near the shoreline, and finally to the Battery itself where pupils can readily imagine attacks from fighter aircraft above the skies of Aberdeen. The unit takes approximately 1 hour to complete and
links very well with our A Streetscape of WWII – Then and Now and shelter visit.
