The anti-tank blocks described above are visible on aerial photographs (e.g. S1). Roadblocks utilising anti-tank blocks have been identified on wartime aerial photographs at two nearby sites (NHER 39181 and as part of NHER 39193), either or both of which might have been the original location of the surviving blocks.
