AA Gun Site
 
There was an AA gun site on land belonging to Dairy House Farm & Brassey Hall Farm both in Colley's Lane Willaston Nantwich, there was also a searchlight about a mile away which was in support. As a boy I remember the army requistioning our spare bedrooms for soldiers whilst they built their accomodation, this would have been about 41-42 I think. Six guns in total plus one searchlight

There was also a ROC post close to the AA site at Dairy House Farm, I remember it being very active during the war
