Archaeology Notes

NC96NE 87.05 Centred 99813 66385

An L-shaped area of huts centred NC 99813 66385 is visible on a postwar air phtograph (106G/Scot/UK133, 3171-3172, flown 30 June 1946) situated about 300m SE of NC96NE 87.01. About 35 huts along with five flat roofed buildings have been noted on the photographs. A vertical air photograph taken in 1977 (OS/77/122, 168, 1977) show that all huts in this area had been removed and only hut bases survived.
