Stirling Hill HAA

Stirling Hill HAA. This is Stirley Hill near Huddersfield which was the site for two Heavy Anti-Aircraft (HAA) guns during WW2, the top of one concrete bunker is visible in this image. The site is in good condition but is now used by a local farmer for storage. There was a Prisoner of War camp for German and Italian prisoners adjacent but only the foundations are left. The site is also supposed to be haunted!

    Well, the bunker and all the story is somehow shadowed by the filtered light which catches one's attention in first hand :-)

      Thank you. I doubt that the site is haunted but I saw a YouTube video of some people that claimed it was. I did find a story in the local paper about an Italian prisoner that stayed here after the war who married a local woman and had a family.

        Seems ironic that prisoner would hang around where he was imprisoned. But I guess he fell in love.

      Thanks. This site is close to the road so it was easier to get to for sunrise than most locations I shoot.

      Cheers, there seems to be some confusion about exactly where the PoW camp was but I found it clearly marked on a 1950s Ordnance Survey map.
