The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


A possible Second World War observation post was visible during field investigation. The post is defined by a large circular mound measuring up to 1.2 metres high with a diameter of 23m. The mound is clearly visible on aerial photographs and is thought to be associated with the adjacent tank training circuit (SS 94 NW 158) and would have been used as part of the wider tank training activities in the area recorded as SS 94 NW 64.
