Archaeology Notes

NG89SW 8.01 centred 8416 9113

The hut bases of the accommodation camp are visible on RAF vertical air photographs (CPE/Scot/UK182, 1348-1350, flown 8 October 1946). One hut of corrugated iron at NG 84157 91116 is still extant and is presently standing empty. Eight hut bases were noted to the E of the road and a further six to the N of the remaining upstanding building. Some of the hut bases have been cut through by a road constructed in the poswar period.

Many of the hut bases can still be found and there is two small concrete bases on the top of the small hill possibly for a flagpole or mast immediately to the S.

Visited by RCAHMS (DE), August 2000.
