Full Description

Several rectangular features are visible in aerial photography just outside of Contin. <1>

A survey was carried out in February 2012 by NOSAS in a field to the NW of Coul House, where there are at least two grassy platforms, both measuring c25 x 9m.
A. Centred on NH 46021 56693 – on a NW-SE alignment
B. Centred on NH 45959 56662 – on a E-W alignment
Other humps and bumps in the field may be significant but nothing could be clearly identified.
This is probably part of the military camp which is known to have existed in the grounds of Coul House during WW2. <2>
