Full Description

What appear to be three small slit trenches, each no more than 10m long, are visible as earthworks at TM49387440, on 1941 aerial photographs (S1). These trenches may have been used for practice or defensive purposes during World War II. They are no longer visible on aerial photographs from 1945 (S2), although there appears to be discolouration in the land surface around the area in which the trenches were located.
