Notes about this historic site

1 Nuthurst is listed on page 321 under Birmingham. It was first mentioned in June 1942. The listing on page 322 states that it was unarmed, which means that it was not equipped with large calibre guns, nor with radar.
2 The site, with control post and gun emplacements, can be seen on an aerial photograph taken in 1948. To the south can be seen a small associated camp, and just inside the wood to the north east is a structure which is also probably connected.
3 None of these features can be seen any more on aerial photographs of 1967.
