Found this one not too far from where we live. Well worth checking out and making sure you take the time to walk the length of it as it's fairly big.

Bit of a bramble-fest so long sleeves recommended!

Since posting the report, I found out that it was originally built before the war so isn't TECHNICALLY an AA battery. Presumably bigger guns were added during WW2.

Explored with Flame:

Ditto, A clue to its location would be handy as I would like to look into its original usage!

Has a look of East Tilbury gun battery to me.
