The Admiralty Lookout

The Admiralty Lookout
The Lookout consists of a three storey dual use building used as an army fire command post and a naval Port War signal station constructed before World War One to provide both control of the guns around Dover and to facilitate the monitoring of shipping in the Dover straits.

The Lookout was constructed on top of an earlier 1874 gun battery called Hospital Battery. The battery was disarmed in 1888 and replaced with three position-finding units for calculating the position of enemy shipping, there is still some evidence of the original battery underneath the Lookout position and the East emplacement remains as a position finding unit today.

The Lookout was constructed in 1905 and a second storey was added in 1914 with further enlargement in 1915. In 1940 the entire building was strengthened against attack by enemy aircraft with concrete overhead protection and a blast wall added at the rear.

The Lookout consists of the ground floor, which was used by the army as a Fire Command Post, and the first floor used as a navy Port signal station, including the roof platform with its signal mast.

The ground floor which was the Fire Command post has two main rooms, the first being the observation room which was manned on a 24 hour basis and has a (D.P.F.) Depression Position Finder for locating shipping mounted on three concrete pillars arranged in a triangle pattern, and a set of stereoscopic binoculars for identification of shipping. The second room was the Fire Commanders office, co-ordinating the control of the eighteen guns which protected the area between Folkestone and St Margaret’s Bay, including searchlight batteries and observation posts. The ultimate control was by the Fortress Commander who was based in the main castle. In addition an officer of the Royal Engineers was based in this room to control the searchlight batteries in the locality. This Command Post was manned by 13 men of the Royal Garrison Artillery.

The first floor and roof platform formed the Port War Signal Station manned by the Royal Navy. The first floor had a main observation room and several offices alongside, which were used for receiving and sending coded information to the various commands and messages to the shipping. The upper platform was used to send flag messages to the ships in the straits of Dover. In addition there were living quarters for the men on watch, with gas cooking facilities and gas heaters. Internal Lookout communication was by speaking tubes.
