World War II beach defences, visible from 1941 on the beach between Kessingland and the Hundred River. The defences comprise at least one line of barbed wire (extending from TM 536855 to TM 537846) linking the strongpoints on the beach and backed up by a second line in places. A number of craters around TM 536853 may indicate that the area to the east of the wire is mined. (S1-2)
