HAA gun battery
HAA gun battery
This is the entrance to the Command post. There are no gun mountings on the round concrete platform seen in the foreground so it was probably not a holdfast. It might have been the spot where the Predictor was placed but this has as yet to be confirmed. For a wider view of this location see > LinkExternal link. This building housed the Battery commander and fire control instructions were issued from here.
Mautby HAA gun battery
A heavy anti-aircraft (HAA) gun battery was located here during WW2. The site was known as YH4 and formed part of a group of HAA batteries constructed for the defence of Great Yarmouth. Four HAA guns were located in square concrete emplacements, arranged around a command post. The domestic site associated with this battery consisted of a number of huts, the platforms of which are still in place. The buildings have long since been demolished.
