Type and Period (4)
A defensive barrier across the River Ore can be seen as a probable structure on aerial photographs of the early 1940s, centred on circa TM38604536. The barrier resembles those seen further to the north in Sudbourne parish (see SUE 055-6), and may consist of a length of barbed wire or a series of mines suspended between buoys or posts. The barbed wire or cable between the buoys or posts is not fixed in position, and moved with the tide, therefore the mapped feature is only a representation of its location at the time the photograph was taken. The barrier is not visible on photographs of 1945. (S1)
