    The Old Woking Heavy Anti Aircraft Battery (BM5), which served the Brooklands Gun Defended Area (GDA), is strategically located at Old Woking, Surrey.

    The only surviving structure of this site is the battery command post, which is in poor condition due to local youths using it as a training camp for graffiti and arson.

    Official records for 1942 state that the battery was equipped with 4 X 3.7" mobile anti aircraft guns operated by 344 battery of 109 HAA regiment. Mobile guns were not permanently emplaced with a holdfast but were on wheels and axles and were the anti aircraft equipment of the field army. All the equipment could have been removed from the site within 30 minutes.
