The BunkerThis bunker or gun emplacement was built in 1942. The round turrets on either side held 6 inch guns. The horseshoe shaped structures which can be seen out in front of low tide are panama mounts. These were built in July 1941 prior to the construction of the more permanent bunker and held four 155mm coast artillery guns. A sister bunker stands across the bay in Lewes Delaware.
