Type and Period (1)
Two pairs of anti-tank cubes can be seen on either side of the railway line to the west of Corton on 1941 aerial photographs (S1). These cubes would have formed a rail block, which would have prevent enemy forces from using the transport lines. This particular rail block is situated in a gap (due to the railway) in the large anti-tank ditch in this area (see record COR 035). The rail block is still 'in situ' on 1944 aerial photographs (S2).
