SU6681 : Wartime Relic in the Woods

Wartime Relic in the Woods
Wartime Relic in the Woods
This is a slit trench and is a remnant of a WW2 supply depot and maintenance unit known as RAF Woodcote. This operated between 1941 and 1959. Most of the buildings were subsequently demolished but a few derelict Nissen huts survive, along with old concrete tracks and hard standing areas, and things like this.
Most are now hidden in the woodland which has largely reclaimed the area.
