Logged Visits
Visited on 13th August 2005 by RHW. Condition: Probably destroyed.
No buildings on LandLine along this whole stretch, which is unsurfaced track passing through MoD training area with no access - not from N anyway. LL has BM at TL73025067 just N of sharp bend, probably on a gatepost or on road? Surviving buildings S from there along Steeplechase are too low.
