The path leads up the west side to the top of the rock passing by this battery, some military support buildings and Rooke Battery.The battery dates from 1788 although it has a plaque labelled "1903" It is named as the nearby Hayne's Cave. This battery was named after Captain Haynes who was the garrison quartermaster in 1787.

In 1911 the guns were removed in favour of the superior 6 inch guns of Tovey Battery.
