This site was not completed, but they did add the bolt rings for the guns.  I believe one building is missing but am unsure of which one.  There is more info on Sheppey Website, but it was a while ago that I wrote it!

A couple more.

One emplacement is accessible but the other three are in a locked compound.

Capel Farm Battery.  I did post photos on here years ago but can't find them.  The same images are on Sheppey Website: http://www.sheppeywebsite.co.uk/index.php?id=76
