Wanstone was the largest of Dover's WW2 coastal batteries. Two 15" guns were installed on the site, named 'Jane' and 'Clem'. The existing farm buildings were utilised, and a deep shelter, plotting room, guard room and many other buildings constructed. Ammunition for the guns was stored in four large bunkers, which were built above ground and then covered with earth. A 3.7" Anti Aircraft gun site is located North West of the main battery. The buildings of the battery survive in good condition, as the site is on private farm land but the whole area is very much overgrown.
This is on private farm land, any thanks to the owners who allowed access to the site.
