Summary

Two World War Two bomb craters are visible on aerial photographs in 1946 to the immediate south of the Warren, Northrepps. One bomb has fallen within the arable field and another on the line of the field boundary. A further six bomb craters existed to the south east, again along a field boundary (NHER 38927). It seems likely that these craters may be from the same raid.
