Trench

Trench

This is one of the trenches on higher ground overlooking Hanger Hill Drive. It has the characteristic zig-zag shape to reduce the impact of a blast being transferred along the trench. These trenches would have been used to protect the ammunition stores located throughout Sherwood Forest. This feature was found with the assistance of aerial photographs taken in the 1950s.
