Description

Desktop survey undertaken in Jan 02 in advance of proposed development. Very little, if any, of the former HMS Ganges naval training establishment structures are of historical or archaeological significance. 2 Martello towers exist, remains of 1862 Shotley Fort and various spot finds in area. In the area to the south of Martello Tower L was located its battery, there was evidence of a subterranean magazine which should be investigated and possibly preserved.
