    another google earth find, this time visited with broken

    [​IMG]

    cant find out any info about this one, but guessing that its the same as the blunsdon one, so i am sure it is an all women anti air craft battery, from what i can see there where about 6 of them in a line covering birdlip all the way to barbury castle, about 5 miles apart from each other

    the same lay out as before, 4 gun placements but this time the center command bunker is still there(just!!) but the main bunker had radiators and piping for water all over the place, and what i first thougth was a toilet, now i have had time to think about it, it was connected to the radiators so i guess its a boiler of some kind to keep them warm

    and one if the bunkers batteries have some really good war time graffiti and it looks geniune and really good condition, as well as a door to the bunker that looks original and very old

    owned by a farmer now, but he is letting them out to a couple of local lads to use for storing and prep of banger cars, the place looks like scrap heap challenge. there was even 2 boats sat there


    this is the center command bunker
