TQ5273 : Dartford Heath

near to Wilmington, Kent, Great Britain

Dartford Heath
Dartford Heath
It may look undisturbed, and is effectively common land now, but the presence of several overgrown concrete roads on this part of the heath is a reminder of previous use as a site for Anti Aircraft guns in WW2. Dave Larcombe of Tiverton recalls a high wire fence around it and concrete ammo bunkers within, in the 1950s. Most of the site disappeared when they built the A2 bypass.
