It also extended northwards to the gun emplacements that are now in the 
park. The area has shrunk .. it could go further but then various things 
would have to be moved ... $$$$$$$ ... There is a very small bit that 
would have to remain at least at some coastal location close to the heads.

I did not see any fence there but then I was more interested in the 
cliff. Unfortunately the DCS is giving me 'no tiles' messages at the 
moment so I will have to leave it there for the moment.
