Archaeology Notes

ND39SW 20.11 centred 3061 9426

The remains of several features survive to the SW of a disused concrete pier.

Two of the structures are set within earth banks whilst another two have had their earth covering removed, one retaining a brick built blast wall. There are also several small structures which may have been air-raid shelters.

The remains are in an enclosure which is shown as the 'Torpedo Depot' on the 1941 Civil Engineers Department of the Admiralty Plan of 1941.
