Notes about this historic site

1 2 The remains of a heavy anti aircraft battery. The control building survives in good condition and three of the battery structures are visible as earthworks on the ground, probably well protected under clay dump. A spread of post medieval rubble to the north of the battery indicates the position of the camp buildings. The aerial photos show four battery structures and evidence of the camp.
3 Possible HAA site at Stoneleigh, maybe a search light. The same photo shows what may be an abandoned aircraft ‘X’ on plan. May be low flying.
4 Marked as H28. No further information.
