taken 8 years ago, near to Sedlescombe, East Sussex, England

Remains of Observer Corps Post, Churchland Field
Remains of Observer Corps Post, Churchland Field
This is labelled 'Reservoir (covered)' on Rother District Council's Ordnance Survey map. However, before it fell into disrepair it was some sort of shelter. There was a ladder from the central concrete block that led down a shaft to two small rooms with two bunk beds, a table and a telephone. Local residents thought it was an atomic fall-out shelter and something to do with the Royal Army Observer Corps. About 20 or 30 years ago a fire was set in the subterranean part and the fire brigade called out. After this it was filled in and is now completely neglected.

In the field a few yards to the east there is a circular patch of brambles where an associated structure used to stand.
