A set of plans for the site of the proposed battery date to 1915 (The National Archives WO78/5185). It appears that the actual layout of the battery did not follow the plans. The roads up to the gun emplacements appear to have been replaced by a tramway system with an inclined plain annotated Haulage Railway on a later plan (The National Archives WO 192/106. The battery observation post was repositioned closer to the battery. It could be that the accommodation camp did not follow the original plans.
