Description
Napier of Magdala Battery is a former coastal artillery battery on the south-western cliffs of the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar, overlooking the Bay of Gibraltar. It also overlooks Rosia Bay from the north, as does Parson's Lodge Battery from the south. It contains one of two surviving Armstrong 100-ton guns and the 100-ton gun.


The 100-ton gun (Armstrong 100-ton gun) was a 17.72 inches (450 mm) rifled muzzle-loading gun.

The first battery built for the guns in Gibraltar was Napier of Magdala, at Rosia Bay.

The barrel on the gun at Napier cracked during firing trials; this was because the crew had managed to stress the gun by firing one shot every 2.5 minutes. The wrecked gun was not easily repairable so it was used as a foundation for a building. The gun at Victoria Battery was moved to Napier, which the military deemed the more effective site.

The guns were too costly to demolish and were left as junk, but later restored to display condition. The gun at Napier of Magdala Battery is still intact and can be visited by the public.

During World War II, the British Army stationed two Bofors quick-firing 40 mm anti-aircraft guns at the site, one of which has been restored and on display.
