Observation Post at High West
In the late 1930’s, to face the threat posed by the Japanese, the military authorities in Hong Kong were forced to review their defence. Apart from constructing batteries, an observation post at the foot of High West, near one end of Harlech Road, was built. High West, which commands wide views at an elevation of 494 metres, provides unobstructed view to monitor the situation in the war. High West is now bathed in the light of the sunset’s afterglow, instead of being filled with sights of war in the olden days.
