The dedicated group helps to maintain and restore the grounds of Brixham Battery. This includes The ATS building, War Shelter, Ammunition Tunnels, Generator Rooms, Gun Emplacements, Battery Observation Post (B.O.P) and other structures around the site. As well as maintaining the Museum and grounds we educate schools and the 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 200 members so far -
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.
