The end of West Fleet, with anti-tank defences on the landward side of Chesil beach
The marshes and WWII anti-tank defences on the shingle bank lie within the grid square. On the other side of the water is Abbotsbury Swannery and the hills on the left and right of the photo are Linton Hill and Chesters Hill respectively. The anti-tank defences on the seaward side of Chesil beach have been removed by the action of the sea over the past 60 years.
