Yes this was a rifle range, I remember in the early sixties as kids we used to play on the site and can remember digging out bullets from the sand.

An HAA battery - it is centred on 53°23'18.88"N 3° 8'22.62"W



it may be G / H29 e13060 (in which case this is misplaced) or may be a new site non standard Command Post - difficult to discern the pattern of the gun pits

I'm pretty sure this is G/H 29 Alisdair. I've updated the eDoB placemark.

The RAF Camp at West Kirby existed from 1940 until about 1960 but according to official records the final passing out parade took place on December 20th 1957. Since then the camp has passed into oblivion and the area is now a mix of farm land and Country Park.
