Two anti-tank cubes can be seen on either side of the railway line west of Gunton Warren in 1941 aerial photographs (S1). This wouls have served as a rail block, preventing enemy use of the railway lines. The cubes can still be seen 'in situ' on 1946 aerial photographs (S2) which is quite unusual, as such rail blocks were usually removed very soon after the end of World War II.
Second World War concrete anti-tank blocks On the West side of the railway embankment just North of a footpath tunnel, Gunton (S3).
