Really Informative as i strolled along the seafront on a business trip. Good to pick up some information and give you something useful to do when working away from home.

Not fantastically exciting however this WW2 gun turret that was once mounted on Exmouth dock walls is now displayed on the seafront. Sealed up for safety. There is an information board next to it that needs updating.

Yet another of the eccentricities for which Exmouth should be famous. It is all welded up and the display board is illegible. The one we had in my home town went for scrap fifty years ago which is where this one belongs.

Interesing historical world war II time relic for afew moments but not more than that. Only one of two war momentos on an otherwise dull sea front.

Didn't expect to see this on the seafront, but it was interesting, particularly with the information board. A great remnder of our military heritage and the freedom we enjoy because of the sacrifice of our grandparents

This Allan Williams Turret has been on the sea front for a long time. It's a pity there isn't more information about it. We didn't know it was Allan Williams!
