A possible Second World War pit with two possible banks are seen as earthworks (which have since been levelled) on aerial photographs (S1). The feature consist of a roughly rectangular pit with two small banks on the pits east and west sides. Two possible small roughly circular pits are also located immediately to the north of the rectangular pit. These features most likely related to Second World War military training or forestry features possibly associated with Culford camp to the south (WRW 032). The pit and banks are similar to further possible Second World War features to the west (WRW 092). The features can be seen as earthworks in the 1940s (S1) and have subsequently been levelled.
