Battery Barlow-Saxton

Saves: 267
Check-ins: 7
Also known as Angels Gate Bunkers, this batter was completed in 1919. It is one of several which protected the mainland USA from attacks by sea. Its distinguishing feature was a series of eight 12-inch mortars which had a range of 11 miles and could be turned 360 degrees. It was operational until the 1940s but now the battery is now open to the public and provides plenty of concrete canvas for urban artists.

Driving W on S Gaffey St, make a right on Barlow Saxton Rd and look for the blue spray painted sign at the first bend in the road. Just down the hill you’ll find a hole in the fence. Note: This is private property so proceed at your own risk.
