Gun emplacements, Catel Fort, Le Greve de Lecq
Built after it was known that the French were making plans in 1779 to invade Jersey with half of their expeditionary force landing at Grève de Lecq.
The battery, manned by a detachment of 15 artillerymen and a sergeant, guarded the bay with three heavy, 32-pound guns on traversing platforms.
