Notes

A Second World War pillbox is visible as a structure on air photographs. The pillbox was built into the Preceptory Chapel. No surface features are visible on the latest 1989-1998 Ordnance Survey vertical photography. A Preceptory chapel altered to house a Second World War pillbox. The pillbox was built into the chapel, but was removed in 1994 as part of consolidation of the chapel. One of its loopholes has been rebuilt, although an illustrated information board erroneously states that this was a 1940 `lookout'.
