Archaeology Notes

NR62SE 34 6692 2041

A Royal Navy Intermediate Ground Control Intercept (GCI) station has been identified from RAF vertical air photographs (106G/Scot/UK157, 3134-3135, 4118, flown 20 August 1946), in the centre of a field about 500m NW of Bruntholme (NR 6717 2000).

Visible on the photographs are three roofed buildings (one large and two small huts) in line from NE to SW, with what may be the aerial at the NE end.
