Archaeology Notes

NS67SW 51 centred 6355 7030

Little remains of this four gun-emplacement battery situated in fields just S of Rushyhill farm. The GL mat (gun laying radar false horizon hexagon) was immediately to the NW of the gun positions. The accommodation camp was situated to the S adjacent to the short stretch of E-W trending minor road to Westerhill.

Information from RCAHMS (DE) July 1997

This World War II heavy anti-aircraft battery has been totally demolished and no evidence could be found of the gun-emaplacements or camp on the date of visit.

The battery was armed with four 4.5-inch guns.
