Type and Period (1)
A WWII anti aircraft battery site. On RAF aerial photographs from March 1944 the air craft battery consists of 4 square emplacements set within earthen banks in a straight line, with some associated structures locate 40m to the west. However, USAF photography from May 1944 shows that the straight emplacement arrangement was replaced with 3 square/rectangular emplacements and a circular emplacement forming a semicircircle around a fifth emplacement, with a further smaller square structure 50m to the west.
