Full Description

A number of bomb craters of World War II date are visible on open ground close to the beach, near Minsmere natrue reserve, on 1945 aerial photographs (S1). These craters may have been caused by practice firing in this area during the war period, or by enemy fire. The fact that many of the craters are in straight lines suggests that they may have been created by an aeroplane dropping bombs, perhaps a bomber releasing surplus bombs at the end of a bombing raid. Much of the area is now underwater, as part of the nature reserve.
