Pinewood Battery
Hatton Road

Pinewood Battery was constructed in 1903 to house two six-inch guns for the defence of Victoria Harbour. Located on a hill 307 m high, it was the highest of all Hong Kong’s coastal batteries. The guns were removed in 1913, but in the mid-1920s the battery was converted to allow two three-inch anti-aircraft guns to be installed on the emplacements. It was severely damaged by the Japanese Army Air Group on 15 December 1941. The site was left vacant after the war and is now a landmark in Lung Fu Shan Country Park.
