Full Description

Four World War II emplacements and two slit trenches, visible as earthworks at TM 43195805, north of Cliff Plantation. The exact purpose of the emplacements is unclear and they may have been constructed for training purposes (S1-2). By 1955, the area is covered in scrubby woodland and it is not possible to tell if the features survive (S3).
