AA Battery Irvine
A World War II anti-aircraft battery was sited to the west of Irvine. Site number IC2. Part of the Clyde AA Defences, the site may also have been known as Shewalton Moor.
The battery was equipped with four emplacements, armed with 3.7-inch guns, and an accommodation camp to the east. Aerial photographs taken by the RAF in 1946 showed the battery and camp west of the nearby railway line.
There are no surviving remains, and a road - Marine Drive - now runs through the area of the site.
