Activities

Field Visit (2 March 2016)

The remains of what may have been a sentry post or machine-gun post are situated in woodland some 20m NE of the fire command post, on a slope just above a terrace created by a field bank running WNW and ESE. The site comprises a platform which extends 4m out from the slope, is 5m in breadth and is a maximum of 0.75m in height along its front edge, at the centre of which is a grass-grown rectangular mound measuring 2m from NW to SE by 1.75 transversely and up to 1m in height. In the centre of the top of the mound there is a rectangular depression measuring 1m from NW to SE by 0.75m transversely and a maximum 0.2m in depth. The feature commands a position overlooking the coastline but it is situated outside the defensive line of barbed wire, of which several stobs remain in situ.
