Remains of Militia Camp, Leigh Hill
Remains of Militia Camp, Leigh Hill
The brick structure is the chimney stack of the Sergeants' Mess, the ruin of which is on the left. LinkExternal link lists some of the features of the camp, but gives no date, apart from the fact that they are shown on the 1st edition of the detailed Ordnance Survey maps, which date them to at least the 1880s or earlier.

From the Neroche Scheme website: "some thirty years ago this chimney stack formed part of a timber-clad building - which was all that remained of a Victorian military encampment, used for training by the Somersetshire Militia.

"Most of the original encampment comprised temporary structures - tents and cabins used by officers and troops stationed on the site during the summer months." LinkExternal link
