Full Description

A series of military cropmarks as visible from SCC APs (S1)(R1).

April 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
The cropmarks described above, interpreted as military cropmarks of unknown but possibly post medieval date, are actually located further to the north than currently recorded by the HER (see Richmond 1994, (S1), figure 4). They relate to the site of a Second World War Diver anti aircraft battery, recorded in more detail by the Suffolk Coast NMP survey (LCS 094).
