Full description

The site is centred on TL 9925 9068, and may be related to airfield defences, or perhaps a further area of military accommodation, such as those recorded to the east, within the airfield perimeter. A further defence post, or spigot mortar emplacement, is visible 285m to the east (NHER 57451).
