  • This is a really interesting article and I like the way it’s still pretty much a mystery even after 70 years. Can anyone tell me if the ruins in the picture still exists? And if so where exactly? I tried to work it out but the aerial photo and the newspaper article are a little too small to read. Many thanks

  • During the 2nd World War searchlights were surrounded with corrugated iron. Could this be what it was? Not being old enough to visit this site at the time I am puzzled.

  • The corrugated structure is something like the searchlight bases which housed a large searchlight, one of which was at Sudburys Farm on the Downham Road, top of Brock Hill. As a child I thought it was a super ray which brought down those naughty German planes for dropping those bombs and silver tapes that hung from that tree at the bottom of our garden [blocking radio signals].
