槓子寮砲台

 Gongtzulou Battery

 

槓子寮砲台位於基隆信義區的北端,腹地寬廣,周圍群山環繞,可遠眺基隆嶼、野柳、和平島、八斗子漁港,視野極佳,風景優美,目前已被列為省定二級古蹟,遺址保存完整,深具歷史意義。

槓子寮砲台範圍遼闊佔地約五公頃,可大致分為三層。第一層是營門、營舍,第二層是辦公室、指揮所活動中心等建築,往上走到第三層,右邊視野所及是基隆的第五期重劃區,左邊則是保存完整的砲座區。面向海岸的方向,有兩個一組,共為六個的流彈砲砲座,每組間有通話孔可互相傳遞訊息。此處砲台的特色是可360度旋轉,採拋物線的射擊方式,再隔堆的保護下,充分發揮「暗砲台」的功能。可見其踞守高地的重要戰略地位。

Gongtzulou Battery is located at the north of Shinnyi District, Keelung. It is surrounded by mountains with a large space. You can see great scenes of Keelung Islet, Ye-liou, Peace Island and Patoutzu harbor from here. Gongtzulou Battery is currently classified as the second-class historical site of Taiwan. This meaningful historical site is well preserved.

The area of Gongtzulou Battery is mainly five hectares. The battery is divided into three layers: entrance and cantonment of the first layer; Office, command post, and activity centers as second layer; and the third layer, At the third layer, you can see the fifth reconstructed area of Keelung on the right side and a well preserved battery on the left. Facing the ocean, there are six carriages of cannon with two for each set. There is a hole at each carriage for the use of passing information. The character of this battery is the ability of turning around in 360 degree. The cannons are fired in a parabola. Under the protection of “traverse”, the function of “hidden battery” can be sufficiently exerted. The importance of possessing a high military position can therefore be concluded.
