Paull Point Battery, coastal artillery battery and Submarine Mining Establishment, Paull - East Riding of Yorkshire (UA)

A gun battery was established in 1542 and rebuilt in 1807. The present large complex was built in 1861-4 and remodelled in 1894. It was designed to defend Hull and the Humber. Earthen banks enclose a vast irregular pentagon parallel with the Humber with long brick-built single-storey barrack blocks on the north side. The buildings are deteriorating, with significant water ingress through the flat roofs and the earthen ramparts are overgrown.
