|Name:||Possible World War Two slit trench|
A possible World War Two slit trench is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs. It can be seen on the cliff edge at Scratby on photographs taken in August 1940, on which it appears to have been recently dug. It was presumably located to inhibit a landing on, and attack from, the beach. It is not visible on later aerial photographs and may have been lost to coastal erosion.

A probable World War Two slit trench is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs (S1), centred at approximately TG 5149 1544. It lies close to the cliff edge and was presumably sited to overlook the beach. It appears to be a relatively fresh earthwork in August 1940. It is not visible on later aerial photographs and may have eroded to become part of the cliff face.
