Full Description

A series of five small hollows were recorded in a line 6m to 10m apart during topographic survey. They comprise a sub-rectangular hollow 1m by 2m and up to 0.3m deep next to a small mound up to 0.5m high, presumably made from the spoil created when digging the hole. It is suggested they are firing positions made for one person, facing E and SE. A number of other hollows across this area have been suggested as Second World War exercise firing positions. <1>
