Full Description

NN 84794 93358
Rectangular concrete platform on a N-S axis with dimensions of roughly 32m x 18m, made up in sections. Some bricks, wooden timbers and cast iron (?broken fire surround) lie about. The platform is recessed into the slope at its east edge where there is a steep bank 1.5m high at south end and 2.0-2.5m at the north end, where there is a knoll, presumably of excavated material. This is probably connected with the wartime activities. Photo 22 from south
