MMO3246 - Possible World War Two impact craters on North Molton Ridge (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
A group of six small pits are visible as earthworks on aerial photographs of North Molton Ridge taken in the 1940s. Centred at approximately SS 7737 3229 and arranged in a linear pattern similar to the spots on a die, each pit measures some 3.5-5 metres across. Their size and grouping suggests they may be the remains of impact craters. North Molton Ridge was the location during the Second World War for a number of large field guns, and it is likely that the craters are associated with this activity. [1-3]
