Full Description

World War II beach defences are visible along the beachfront at Kessingland (at TM 53628568 and TM 53628582) in 1941. The defences are a line of barbed wire with at least one section extending back inland and, although there are two sections visible, it is probable that they are the visible parts of one continuous length right along the beachfront.(S1)
