Heugh Gun Battery Trust


The Heugh Battery Museum tells the story of the Bombardment of the Hartlepools, which took place on Wednesday 16th December 1914, when the guns of the Heugh Battery and neighbouring Lighthouse Battery were engaged in ship-to-shore combat with the German navy. The site of the Heugh Gun Battery has been a military position since the 17th century. Now, the Heugh Battery Museum sits on the site of the only First World War battlefield in Britain.
