Torry Battery
The Torry Battery was built in 1860 to withstand a French invasion that never materialised. It was also part of the World War 2 defences to repel the Nazi invasion that never came, although guns there did fire at enemy planes. For a short time in the 1950's it was used for housing. It became an unofficial dumping ground and eyesore until it was given a facelift in 1971. It is now listed as a Scheduled Ancient Monument
