taken 7 years ago, near to West Acre, Norfolk, Great Britain

Trank traps, Narford
Trank traps, Narford
This unusual and, so I believe, quite unique group comprising 36 hairpin tank traps formed part of the Eastern Command: II Corps Line B. This defence line ran from Southwold via Harleston on the Suffolk-Norfolk border through Attleborough, Watton and Swaffham in Norfolk and then continued on to King's Lynn. Not a conventional stop line but one centred around main roads offering no definite obstacle. All towns forming way points on the line and villages within a mile either side were to be prepared for defence. DOB site reference: S0002193.
