SP2769 : Goodrest Farm defences

Goodrest Farm defences
Goodrest Farm defences
These hastily built looking bunkers beside the farm drive were probably built as part of the air defences for the industrial Midlands during WWII.

Information suggests they look a bit like a Heavy Anti Aircraft gun battery.

Typically there would be four gun positions usually with mount for gun in the centre and surrounded by magazines for shells. One low rectangular building would be for the battery command and a short distance away there would be an engine house.
