Location of a 2ndWW HAA Gun Battery, possibly some of the fairground rides are built on the circular foundations of the gun pits? The Defence of Britain Project records " Site of a Second World War heavy anti aircraft (Diver) battery in the Diver Fringe near Withernsea Pier. It was armed with four 3. 7-inch Mark IIc guns equipped with Predictor AA No. 10 Mark 1, and Radar AA No. 3 Mark V when it was deployed here on 19th November 1944. Manning details are unknown. It formed part of the Humber Section 65 Heavy Anti Aircraft Brigade deployment."

i've never seen any pictures of this structure before, it looks like a bandstand! Does anyone know what it is for sure and when did it disappear?

"Nettleton's" field. A fine collection of holiday accommodation converted from bus, tram and railway coach bodies. It may have been 60+ years ago but I can still remember those holidays!

Turntable at the track end. First delight of the holiday was to watch the engine been pushed around by the loco crew for it's return to Hull.
