Local residents report secret WW2 bunker towards the west end of Littleferry. Planned to be used in case of invasion. Used to play in it as children until a sheep fell into it and died, resultant smell meant play area was abandoned. <1>
Participants in a Community Timelines course, run by ARCH reported that this bunker is now buried and no longer visible or accessible. <2>
Visible remains consist of a large raised flat mound covered in moss and trees although the edges of the mound were not clear and an extent to the site was difficult to ascertain. <3>
