Full description

July 2002. Norfolk NMP.
The structures are 21m apart and appear to be located within the beach scaffold NHER 36846 (S1), and were presumably part of the wider system of fortifications intended to protect the bay and approach to Holkham. The structures are not visible on later images, and are presumably either destroyed or obscured by sand and vegetation.
See also NHER 36846 and 36847.
M. Brennand (NMP), July 2002.
