CIVIL BOMBING DECOY C1F

DESCRIPTION + /

A Second World War bombing decoy site at Lawrence Weston. It was built as part of the 'C-series' of civil decoys to deflect enemy bombing from Bristol. This was a 'QF' decoy, which consisted of a series of controlled fires lit during an air raid to replicate a target struck by bombs. It is referenced as being in use during 1943. By the 1970s the site had been given over to agricultural use and no features of the decoy survive. Further civil bombing decoys for Bristol were located at Sheepway, Stockwood, Severn Beach, Chew Magna, Patchway, Yeomouth, Downside and Kenn Moor.
