Archaeology Notes

NH86NW 11.02 centred 8005 6707

The accommodation camp for the South Sutor coast battery is depicted as a series of buildings on the current chart copy OS 1:10000 map (1980) to the N of the track that leads to the battery.

Information from RCAHMS (DE) January 1998

The army accommodation camp for the coast battery at South Sutor is situated on the shore side of the track, S of Little Rock, that leads to the military installations.

Most of the site now comprises concrete hut bases, however, there are one or two huts extant and presently occupied. One of these buildings was the Officers Mess and this is now a private house. Within this private house and painted on a wall is the badge of the Royal Artillery Regiment.
