Right, do bare with me as this is the first time Ive ever done this. I only have a relatively old camera so the pictures are not great.

At Purdown, Bristol there was an Anti-Aircraft battery during WW2. The location is great as its really high up and can see those pesky germans coming from miles away.

I started off by following the big tower. At this point my clean shoes were getting muddy :mad: but I carried on hastly.

At the top the views are great (although the pics dont do it justice at all). Its a shame they came out poor :(.

The first of the platforms a bit overgrown and covered in graffiti.

This one wasnt too intact but you can see where the gun emplacement used to be.

Then I came across a sort of concrete trench that ran quite a distance. Its mostly overgrown but I managed to get some pics of it.

Then I found one the platforms that you could climb into.
