City's defence

There was indeed a time when there were a couple of redoubts along Mount Road, to protect the travellers from vagabonds and highwaymen. Those days went out at least a century ago and over time, the redoubts have also been forgotten.

While they look reasonably real enough, it is a fair bet these guns haven't seen active service. What do you think?

@ lviss: You mean 'shoot & scoot'?

@ Hobbes: :D Thanks!

@ ahem: I think they've been around for a long while - just didn't notice them till now! (And I'm sure I should know you from MNS, but I'm not able to guess!)
