A NETWORK of underground tunnels with a disturbing secret lies abandoned and overgrown in the forest.
Hidden deep in the North Lincolnshire woods in the village of Stallingborough is a fascinating glimpse into the past.
Abandoned for decades, here lies the lost remains of one of only six surviving 5.25-inch anti-aircraft stations known in the country and offers a fantastic insight into Grimsby’s wartime history.
The former heavy anti-aircraft battery became obsolete over half a century ago and, although a little overgrown, is still clearly visible.
These batteries usually consisted of a emplacement for guns specifically aimed at aircraft, and this site is considered one of the rarest, most advanced and significant WWII gun sites remaining in the country.
Urban explorer Lost Places & Forgotten Faces visited the memorial to take a look at this eerie reminder of Grimsby’s wartime past and posted the photos on his Facebook page.
The site is in the woods off Keelby Road in Sallingborough.
It was decommissioned circa 1955 and, as the photos show, is heavily overgrown, with its concrete structure showing signs of significant deterioration.
Despite its decline, there is still a powerful and fascinating insight into the wartime history of the region.
