Looks pretty atmospheric

Found this
Throughout the war, I lived in the Loxley Valley, and there was a gun site on Wood Lane, Stannington. Several planes were shot down by that gun site during the Sheffield Blitz. The nearest came down at Rod Moor, but it only killed a sheep! Whenever a plane was hit, the pilot used to jettison the bombs before it went down. One went into the corner of Damflask Reservoir, one landed in a farm-yard and one landed on Red Moor.
Described elsewhere as a HAA battery with 4 x 4.5 inch guns
