Full description

May-November 2004. Norfolk Rapid Coastal Zone Archaeological Survey.
Inter-tidal survey (Environmental Zone 8), Context 843:
A scatter of concrete fragments, fragments of drain and loose red bricks (some stamped 'FLETTON LIMITED') were found close to the eastern end of Scolt Head Island.
These could have been remains of a World War Two building, although the drain pipes and lack of reinforcing rods suggests a possible post war date.
See assessment report (S1) for further details.
The associated archive has been deposited with the Norwich Castle Museum (NWHCM : 2017.421).
