Tyne and Wear HER(12554): Whitley Bay, aircraft obstruction - Details
Whitley Bay, aircraft obstruction
Anti Aircraft Defence Site
Second World War aircraft obstructions are visible as earthworks and cropmarks on air photographs. The feature appears to be no longer extant on the latest 1988 Ordnance Survey vertical photography. The aircraft obstructions predate the anti aircraft battery (UID 1414464) located in the same area. Now a caravan park.
