Here is a British map from Kinglake's history of the war. Note that the British call Bastion 1=Battery of the point; Bastion 2=The Little Redan; Bastion 3=The Redan; and Bastion 4=The Flagstaff Bastion - The Flagstaff Bastion is the location now of the Panorama Museum. The stone fort tower on the Malakov Kurgan is the Kornilov tower. Note how the deep inlet comes between the Redan and Flagstaff bastions. Itr was covered by a very thin Russian defensive work, but an assault there would have come under devastating cross fire from the ridges in either side. The entire Vorontsov Road was covered by Russian fire.
