Type and Period (2)
Two small WWII date trenches are visible as earthworks on Dingle Great Hill on 1945 aerial photographs (S1). It seems that one, at TM48277315, may be weapons pit, while the other, at TM48277311, is a small slit trench. These would have been defensive or practice features during the World War II period, and may be associated with the building on the hill, labelled Dingle Fort on the map. There may be other small trenches on the hill, but it is difficult to be sure from the photographs as trees and uneven ground could easily be mistaken for features.
