MSO10244 - World War Two firing range impact craters west of Larkbarrow Farm (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
The Larkbarrow area was used as a World War Two training ground. Artillery practice has left the area pockmarked with shell holes, many of which appear to cluster around the farm buildings and other distinctive features of the landscape, such as boundary walls.  Only the most extensive areas have been mapped. [2,3]
