MONUMENT NO. 1490697

DESCRIPTION + /

Numerous small linear holes can be seen on aerial photographs of the 1940s, as earthworks on the eastern slopes of Draydon Knap. Grouped into 5 clusters of varying size over about 550 metres of hill side, the holes are probably small slit trenches dug as part of Second World War military training exercises known as weapons pits or foxholes. They are probably associated with large camps or enclosures visible to the north and south.
