User-Submitted Notes

The immediate area just to the east of this barrow was designated as what was known as a Starfish Decoy Site during WWII. Basket Fires were ignited electrically from a Control Bunker ( Photo uploaded ) located about half a mile to the NW. The Control bunker is similar to the one near Osmotherley at SE 47375 97908 and listed on this Website.
