Full description

October 2004. Norfolk NMP.
A group of World War Two slit trenches and possible weapons pits is visible on aerial photographs (S1-2). These remains are centred on TG 31613023. Two slit trenches are visible along with areas of disturbed soil which may represent further backfilled trenches or weapons pits. It is likely that these features relate to training activity and are connected with other areas to the north and northwest (NHER 38821, 38820) and the camp to the west (NHER 38819).
(S1-2)
