Archaeology Notes

NJ26NE 30.06 28141 67836

The main engine room supplying power to the two gun emplacements and magazine (NJ26NE 30.09) is situated in open woodland about 50m S of No.1 Gun emplacent (NJ26NE 30.01). The building is set into a sand dune and measures about 4.3m by 3.4m overall with one bay and entrance on the S elevation. The interior has an engine bed (mounting) on concrete floor. The engine mounting is constructed of reinforced concrete in two parts with bolt holes set on top. The steel strengtheners are visible where the concrete has been broken away at the NW end of the block.

Externally at the SE end is a chimney, presumably for the exhaust from the diesel engine.
