April 2018. 'Brecks from Above' and Breckland National Mapping Programme.
A line of widely-spaced circular pits is visible as earthworks on 1940s aerial photographs (S1)-(S3). They may be Second World War bomb craters, although this is not certain and other interpretations are possible. Several of the pits are visible on imagery from a lidar survey flown in 2015 (S4), suggesting that they probably still survive as earthworks.
