MOTSoc Returns to Fort Stony Batter

MOTAT Society returned to one of our favourite excursions, Fort Stony Batter, a World War 2 tunnel network and gun emplacement on Waiheke Island in the Waitematā Harbour. Guided by archaeologist Tim Moon, we explored the tunnels and gun emplacements built as part of the defence complex to protect Tāmaki Makaurau from foreign invasion.

Our tour was followed with a great lunch at Wild on Waiheke. Thank you to Tim and the DoC team at Fort Stony Batter for an interesting tour and thank you also to our wonderful (and patient) driver Rohit from Waiheke Bus Co, our transport for the day.
