Location On the east side of farm track on top of bank and next to a pillbox. 100 yards of private gated road to Beach Farm. Steps lead up the bank from the farm track. The underground post was a few yards north of the pillbox.
Description DEMOLISHED The surface features were demolished in 1995 for safety reasons and the shaft filled with rubble and soil. Since then the infill has slumped a little and access could be gained with some digging. The land owner remembers the bunks were still in place.
