According to AP 3236 a total of 13 MTR were built. Are they now all accounted for?
I doubt that I would have spotted the Theddlethorpe example so good spot PNH.

If I have this right we have located the following:
Towyn - Don't know how this got here as its not in my master list!
Dalcross (Fort George)
Identified but not located (yet)

Then West Freugh must be the last man standing. But I bet there were more than 13!
I thought I would look at the 1940 Luce Bay range map on the Defence Estates Byelaw pages to see if was mentioned. Alas the map is almost unreadable. My next thought was that it might be on the fringes of the range area. Another 30 miles of coast to check!
Just edited my list as Towyn (Twywn) crept in despite not being in my list.
I have made a GE kmz file for all the ones so far with West Freugh marked as a wild guess.
Hope it works
I would have expected it to be located near or on the Luce Bay (Sands) Range area adjacent to the airfield to simplify logistics. It ought to have had the semi permanent turret building rather than using mobile turrets on the back of trucks.
As Carnaby has said, after hours of looking at coastal sands you begin to see shapes that fit the bill (or not!)
I think this is a possibility:
I am wearing my stupid hat today, you reckon Towyn should not be on your list, I would tend to agree as I thought it had always been an Army camp. So what it the Towyn camp in one of your early posts on this thread?
