Structures
The remains of an Orlit A stands on a mound just outside the south west corner of the compound. It consists of a concrete base and two walls with gaping holes. Just outside the north east corner of the compound is the base of another building (20' X 10') with a couple of courses of bricks remaining in place. This is probably the remains of an earlier (WW2) aircraft post.
