This was one of at least 43 Heavy Anti-Aircraft batteries that were constructed to protect the industries in the centre of Glasgow and along the banks of the River Clyde from aerial attack by the Luftwaffe during WWII. However, only a fragment of the camp associated with it survives and this is a single, heavily overgrown, concrete platform (NS 52587 59261) situated in waste woodland between Corselet Road and the Aurs Burn. It is rectangular on plan and measures at least 6.5m from NW to SE by 3.5m transversely and 0.2m high. Much brick and rubble debris is scattered hereabouts over what is now very largely disturbed ground.
