The site of the military accommodation camp for the Admiralty Pump House and water works is situated below Am Beum, at the end of track which leads from the Pump House (NG88SW 5.00). <1>

Second World War anti aircraft battery. Four concrete bases remain; the sub-cirular base furthest east would have housed the anti-aircraft gun with three other ancillary buildings housing personnel and amunition. Likely had a role to offer cover and protection to the nearby water / fuel depot, pumps, tanks and pipeline. <2>
