Subterranean building revealed in cliffface, from the beach
Site of a Second World War heavy anti aircraft (Diver) battery in the Diver Strip on Covehithe Cliffs. It was armed with four 3.7-inch Mark IIc guns equipped with Predictor BTL, and Radar AA No.3 Mark V when it was deployed here on 24th November 1944, and was manned by 401 Battery of 122 Anti Aircraft Artillery Regiment. It formed part of 40 Heavy Anti Aircraft Brigade deployment (S2). Since 1940, about 500 yards of cliff have been lost at this point which would suggest that the installation was over a quarter of a mile from the cliff edge at the time. There is no access from the surface. For another view see: LinkExternal link
