AA Battery Hangingshaw

Recent Page Trail:

A World War II anti-aircraft battery was sited to the south of Glasgow, and west of Rutherglen. Site number S11. Part of the , the site was known as Hangingshaw, or Toryglen.

The battery was equipped with four emplacements, a command post, and an accommodation camp. Aerial photographs taken by the RAF in 1941 showed the battery together with the rows of huts which formed the accommodation camp, to the west of the emplacements.

Also seen in the aerial photographs was Z-Battery Polmadie, a rocket battery sited across the road, approximately 250 metres northwest of the conventional heavy anti-aircraft (HAA) battery.

No remains of the battery have survived, and the site lies in the middle of a housing development, south of a school.
