Full Description

A zig-zag section of barbed wire obstruction can be seen on aerial photographs from 1941 (S1). It's exact function is unclear, as it does not appear to be enclosing anything in particular. The feature straddles the London Road, between Lowestoft and Kessingland. The section to the west of the road appears very faintly on photographs from 1944 (S2).
