September 2019. Breckland National Mapping Programme.
Two mounds, ditch features and a possible structure, of a possible Second World War date, are seen as earthworks (before being subsequently removed and levelled) on aerial photographs (S1-S2). The features consists of two mounds separated by a ditch with a further possible ditch on the western side of the features. A possible building can be seen immediately to the east of the earthworks. It is possible that these features may relate to Second World War training, Second World War Forestry activities associated with Culford Camp (WRW 032) to the west or possibly post medieval extraction. The building and earthworks are removed/ levelled by the 1950s
