Activities

Field Visit (22 August 2017)

Nothing is now visible in an area redeveloped for playing fields of a World War Two light anti-aircraft battery which is noted in a document held by the National Archives at Kew (WO 166 7369). The battery was one of at least three, constructed to protect Gourock. Similar arrangements of light anti-aircraft batteries were established around a number of vulnerable points, either military or industrial, along the banks of the Clyde.
