Archaeology Notes

NR74NW 32 70358 49952 to 70043 49445

What may be a small bombing range with target indicator and observation towers is visible on postwar vertical air photographs, (RAF CPE/Scot/UK 278, 3055-3057, flown 25 August 1947). Visible as a curving track with a tower at each end with the target indicator (NR 70057 49430) next to the southern observation post. The range is also depicted on the OS 1:10000 scale map (1991) as a curving track with builidings at each end.

The observation post NR75SW 43 is almost certainly linked with this installation.
