Wartime fence near Greenfield Farm
The tall concrete fenceposts are the remains of the perimeter fence of the Burnhill Junction munitions dump closed in 1969 (the Stanhope and Tyne railway ran a short distance to the left). The fence can also be seen at the western edge of the plantation NZ0544 : Parkhead Plantation. Other military installations in the area are a possible airstrip at NZ0742 : Parallel walls, Saltersgate Lane and bunkers at NZ0744 : World War II bunkers at Burn Hill. This length of fence is now being supplemented by a carefully laid hedge.
