I've found mine, but can't remember how it got there. It is listed under 'places' down the left side of google Earth and includes airfields, dummy airfields etc. The National Grid Ref is TQ734625

Another thought: I remember that at some time there was a map of all AA gun sites in the UK overlaid on Google Earth. I even remember that they could be selected to show in the same way as hotels etc, or am I dreaming?  Again can anyone help?

This link shows it to be a 4.5 gun site, numbered S24, at Cassini Ref R162803:

I believe that somewhere on the Forum the conversion of Cassini to National Grid locations was dealt with. Can anyone help?

Hi,
Does anyone know where abouts the anti-aircraft battery is located in Burham, Kent?
Managed to find a photo of it in the 80's but can't make any connection to the site using google maps.

Thanks

Mark
