Remains of WWII buildings on Ibsley Common, New Forest
Remains of WWII buildings on Ibsley Common, New Forest
During the Second World War an airfield was created at Ibsley in the Avon valley below, and there were a few associated buildings up here on the plateau of Ibsley Common. On the right are the remains of a rectangular building, and on the left what looks like a small air-raid shelter. The entrance to the shelter is partly filled with brick rubble from the building on the right. Neither of these buildings are marked on any OS map.
