Brocton Camp 'K-Lines' Brigade Headquarters Building
I haven't worked out the layout of the building but is similar to the example in 'E-Lines' it probably has a standard wooden hut on the front and toilets to the rear as evidenced by concrete slabs and brick manhole. The building is on the sloping ground on the Oldacre Valley side of the camp.

The building has been identified from the 1916 drainage plan.
The Chase Through Time :: SK0016
The Chase Through Time is a Heritage Lottery funded project with Staffordshire Council, Historic England and local volunteers to unravel over 2000 years of manís activity across Cannock Chase.

Cannock Chase has a rich history with its Iron Age Camp at Castle Ring, Medieval Hunting Forest, Deer Park and grazed heathland, two Great War Training Camps and post war forestry. Hidden beneath the trees and scrub there is a lot to be found.

As part of the project a LIDAR survey was undertaken of the twenty eight square mile area. Some features have been verified on the ground by the volunteers assisting the Historic England researchers. However, with such a large area only some areas have been visited.

Using the images submitted on Geograph in conjunction with the LIDAR and Historic England mapping on Arcgis should allow a photographic record of the features to be developed by the volunteers.

The combined LIDAR map can be found at LinkExternal link
