Chadwell Heath anti-aircraft gun site, Whalebone Lane North (off), Chadwell Heath - Barking and Dagenham

The remains of a World War II anti-aircraft battery with pits for eight guns in two groups of four and associated structures. The buildings are in an isolated spot and have been subject to vandalism. The former quarry is being restored, including the land levels around the gun site and when complete there will be a five year aftercare plan. A feasibility report, with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund in 2015, explored the potential of the site. Discussions are ongoing between the Local Authority, the Crown Estate and Historic England regarding its future use and management.
