A line of three World War Two bomb craters appear to be visible on aerial photographs, to the west of Sea Palling village, running from TG 4247 2655 to TG 4281 2635 (S1-S2). The site is centred on approximately TG 4264 2644, although this point does not correspond to any of the features. The two largest and westernmost craters, measuring 15m in diameter, are visible in 1943 (S1). The circular holes clearly cut through the drains running along the field and are surrounded by the characteristic ‘splash’ spoil rings. The third eastern crater is smaller, 10m diameter, and is created between January 1943 and July 1946 (S1 and S2).
