Full description

July - August 2009. Historic building recording.
A World War II water tank was located 70m north-east of the old parade ground parallel to Oxford Road. The tank was buried beneath 0.85m of topsoil and consisted of a square of concrete measuring 7.88m squared. There was a manhole in the south-east corner which was flush with the topsoil level. Beneath the manhole was a series of rungs for entry to the tank. Several small features may have been stand points or could be linked to the construction of the tank. A metal reinforcing rod was also located along the southern edge of the slab.
