    Its actually two towers separated by a gap just a few inches wide. On one tower was mounted the Bofors anti-aircraft gun and on the other a predictor.

    Manned by the Home Guard and the RAF Regiment in WW2

    Now lies sad and abandoned in a small area of woodland. at the entrance to what is now Kings Hill.

    Didn't know it was accessible actually, nice one. The gap is interesting, it's so the vibration of the guns doesn't affect the electronics.

    Nice to see inside & top side again. That outer fence is a right bugger as was/is the anti climb paint.

    I am in Kent occasionally and have noticed this from the traffic island and always wondered what it was.
