December 2004. Norfolk NMP.
The World War Two air shelter cannot clearly be discerned on the available aerial photographs in 1946 (S1). This may be due to the shadow of the tree belt that used to run along the eastern boundary of the property. The structure may also have been camouflaged. A possible structure is visible towards the rear of the garden, although it cannot adequately be seen to allow identification and mapping through the NMP process.
S. Massey (NMP), 29 December 2004.
