About

The Brixham Battery Heritage Group was founded in 1999 by the late Ron Coleman, we are a group of volunteers helping to restore the Brixham coastal defence battery built in 1940 and provide on-site information to the general public and other organisations. The group uses the Artillery Training Section (ATS) hut as its education centre and museum after having secured a 25 year lease from Torbay council.

The dedicated group helps maintain and restore the grounds of Brixham Battery, which includes, The ATS building, War Shelter, Ammunition Tunnels, Generator Room’s, Gun Emplacements, Battery Observation Post (B.O.P) and other structures around the site. As well as maintenance we educate schools and general public about the history and operation of the site during WWII.

Until his passing in Feb 2006 the group was proud to have a veteran sergeant, Mr Ron Coleman, who manned the Battery with others during the second world war; as their Secretary.

The group has over 90 members so far - of all ages. There are always projects and work to be done at the centre, whether it is helping restore the war shelter and ammunition tunnels right up to helping out in the museum.

As a registered charity, the Heritage Group has been generously awarded various grants and relies heavily on donations from visitors. Another way of receiving funds is through organised school visits and also visiting other heritage sites where we produce WWII displays

FREE MUSEUM RUN BY VOLUNTEERS AND DONATIONS ONLY.
Open Sunday, Monday and Friday 2pm - 4pm. Private tours available anytime with prior arrangement.
