Harp Farm Anit-Aircraft Battery, Boxley
« Reply #1 on: April 23, 2014, 19:34:28 »
During the second half of 1915 and into 1916 four static dual AA batteries were added to the East of the Chatham, these were located at Hartlip Hill, Queensdown Warren, Matts Hill Farm and on the crest of Boxley Hill at Harp Farm.  These batteries were only once armed during an anti-invasion exercise.  Each site was made up of two concrete bases each of 72 tons and hold fast bolts for 6" naval guns.
