Full description

September 2005. Norfolk NMP.
A possible camouflaged World War Two gun emplacement may be visible on a 1946 aerial photograph, within a hedgerow alongside a track leading to Northend Farm, Sea Palling (S1). The site is centred on TG 4214 2710. The structure is only visible as an oval clump of vegetation, measuring 9m by 6.5m, with a roughly circular hole in the top, which distinguishes it from the other natural clumps of vegetation. The texture and profile of the vegetation on this feature is much smoother and denser than the surrounding bushes and trees, again suggesting that it may be a camouflaged structure.
S. Massey (NMP), 30 September 2005.
