Holmpton Cliffs
Holmpton Cliffs
A relic of WWII north of Holmpton village - basically a box shaped shed with buttressed walls built in three courses of brick and a 20cm thick concrete roof. Presumably all but the front was previously covered by the earth mound. The large entrance doesn't match the concrete lintels so it may have been altered for farm use after the war. Coastal erosion has been dramatic in this region since the structure was built so it would originally have been some distance from the sea, probably serving other installations in more advanced positions.
