Type World War One Audit of Surviving Remains


Plans dated 1916 exist for two Defence Electric Lights but the remains of three have been identified on the site; it is not known when the third searchlight was added.

A fourth searchlight emplacement lies to to the S at NS 20280 75697, this does not appear on the 1916 plan of the battery (The National Archives WO 192/106), and therefore may be a Second World War searchlight emplacement.
