A World War II strongpoint is visible from 1940 at TM 530825, south of Benacre Broad. The site is initially visible as a pillbox within a barbed wire circuit (at TM 53178263) (S1) but in 1943 it is possible to see two sections of trench within a possible barbed wire line within Long Covert, immediately to the west (S2). The pillbox and at least one of the trenches has since been eroded away.
