That looks like the powder magazine bunker. Newly sealed destruction by the look of it.

Looks like the 18th AA Battery.

If that's the AA, all of the photos are taken from vantage points I've not seen!

This is over in Dartmouth, and probably used to be part of the ammo depot.

It's right here: http://goo.gl/maps/YrjZX

I was hoping people had been there before, I can't find any info on it.

It's got DND signs of the main road, but I'm doubtful about their presence in this area.
A tree has fallen across the main road, and has certainly been there for months. There was a sign indicating that the eastern tip of the land had not been cleared after the depot explosion, meaning it hasn't seen much use since then. There were some spots where the brush had been cleared away and piled up, but it wasn't fresh. Nothing to indicate an active presence.
I'd guess that a DND worker comes by once or twice a year (or when they have nothing to do and are hiding out from the boss), maybe clears the road a bit and makes sure there's no squatters, but not much else.
You could build some very expensive condos on that land, and I'm thinking the only reason DND hasn't gotten rid of it a long time ago is because of the risk of unexploded shells in the dirt.

Put an X on a screen shot of an aerial photo and we'll see. A few people here know YR pretty well.

Those are probably the tunnels at the end of the RML guns just before the hill to the command post.

I checked out York Redoubt a couple of years ago, really cool place. Good for an easy afternoon of wandering. Took some photos while there as well. https://imgur.com/a/GkuT4

Not bad.
Did you take the chance to climb into one of the towers?
