Control shelter and generator building near Fields Farm
Control shelter and generator building near Fields Farm
There is an almost identical photo on page 83 of Steve Carvell's 'Twentieth-Century Defences in Warwickshire' (Tempus, 2007), together with a plan and section of the building. It relates to a World War II bombing decoy site. "The site had facilities for an extended grid of ground lights and fires acting as a decoy for bombers seeking Coventry, located 10 miles north." The location described matches this site perfectly although the grid reference given, SP364676, is either wrong, a typo, or relates to some other feature of the whole site.
