Notes

The site of a Royal Observer Corps monitoring post. The site was built as part of an extensive network of posts designed to confirm and report hostile aircraft and nuclear attacks on the United Kingdom. The post was opened in April 1958 and was closed in October 1968. It was found to have been destroyed by the time of the Defence of Britain survey. The site was located underground on the top of a tumulus in the Stephens Castle Nature Reserve.
