Type and Period (2)
A probable World War II Light Anti-aircraft Artillery emplacement is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs, centred on TM46445700. The pit is first visible on aerial photographs of 1941 (S1). It is visible as a circular pit of about 5m in diameter, surrounded by approximately 2m of upcast spoil or sandbags to provide protection for the occupants. It probably housed 2 or 3 men and a machine gun on a central pivot or stand, to allow free movement of the weapon when firing upon enemy aircraft. It is still visible on aerial photographs of 1945 (S2).
