April 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
Evidence of Second World War military activity, including earthwork pits and several structures, is visible within plantation woodland on 1940s aerial photographs (S1)-(S4). The precise nature of the site (whether it was used for training or was a coastal defence) is uncertain. It is not known whether any elements still survive today.
