The former site of a Second World War Diver Strip Battery, associated camp and defences, is visible on aerial photographs (S1) at Alderton. Another two Diver Batteries are located to the north (ADT 085, ADT 088). The site consists of the main strip of four gun emplacements and the associated operational and accommodation buildings located to the west and north of the guns. Around the perimeter of the battery were defences, including pillboxes and slit trenches. Recent photography and mapping would suggest that no above ground components of this site remain.
Due to time constraints only the extent of the buildings have been mapped and not individual structures.
