Gongsuohou battery was armed with 2 x 9.2 inch Armstrong disappearing carriage guns. Real location of 28 cm Krupp coast howitzers is unknown, just described as "highest peak of island" so I suppose it was in building/structure used later by British as a signal station.
Many thanks for the interesting information.
The "highest peak of island" is Qidingshan Hill. Now there are Britain-built two guns battery (the Centurion battery) on the western (left) highest top of hill.

There are two old photos of Qidingshan Hill and Liugongdao island. Some structures used later by British as a signal station supposedly are situated on the eastern (right) top of the hill.

Perhaps, indeed on the western top of the hill was located a battery of 28 cm Krupp howitzers.

Unfortunately there are very few old photos of coastal batteries on the island of Lugongdao.

Seems like the one from Juteborg (artillery school?) but with turret.
