HAA Battery: DoB ID: e00046

Now largely demolished, just one circular 5.25 in. gun emplacement remains, the entrance to which is guarded by one remaining high sloping blast wall, glimpsed between the first two trees. The grassed mounds of two other demolished 5.25 in. gun emplacements flank it, as well as footprints of the original 3.7 in. gun pits that were also on the site.
