Full Description

Two surviving nissen huts dating from World War Two were apparently part of a searchlight installation. There are daffodils seen growing in this area that mark the crossing point that soldiers used at the time, which they themselves planted. The field has been ploughed and this has uncovered many 'electrodes', used to generate the illumination in the searchlights. [1]
