Blast Shelter: DoB ID: e11033

The gun pit is situated just a few yards east of an open blast shelter, the latter being the sole survivor of 14 that once stood at various locations in and around the technical site. With the threat of invasion having receded by late 1942, open brick-built blast shelters such as these were built instead of the more substantial Stanton air raid shelters that hitherto had provided protection for airfield personnel.
