This photograph appeared on, well, obviously eBay, a few days ago. The seller just called it a large cannon but it is near the Belgian coast. Anyone know what Battery it was ?

As no-one else has offered an alternative, I am 99.9% sure it is the Wilhelm II at Knocke.

Thanks Peter. I was hoping that it was in a bit of open space, maybe a park but the site is now obliterated by houses. I confirmed this by finding the location on a trench map then looking at a up to date aerial.
