  • We went latish afternoon and there were just a few dog walkers. From the top you get a good view out to sea and can have a very nice walk round the site. Beware there are no toilet facilities. 
  • Not able to enter as the place was closed for the Season. We managed to take a couple of photos. It probably would have been worthwhile seeing. Probably, as it is a little off the beaten track, not ma...  more »
  • After a few wrong turns, we found the York Dedoubt Site. It's not very well marked. We enjoyed the walk around the site and the informative plaques.

  • Great day trip and the lower structures are fun to explore as long as you are of sound mind. Do not walk under or on top of ANYTHING and you will get some great pictures.
  • This historic site houses one of the oldest batteries in Canada and was in operation from 1793-1956. It was used even during WW2. The Martello tower now only has the base level, but the buildings and rifled muffle loader guns are something to see - how technology evolved in the late 18th century and on. Kids love the site and it has a beautiful view of the harbour mouth. If you have a car it's worth a trip out. Open until 8pm. The small sign from the highway gets overgrown by foliage so keep an eye out.
  • This is an awesome place to explore. Great cannons, views of the harbour and living history.
  • A good historic site, could have been better maintained. Short hike to the water was nice.
  • Great history. Nice walk. Amazing view
