Trench

Trench

This trench is near to the north end of 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 during WW2 to protect the ammunition stores located throughout Sherwood Forest. This feature was found following our LiDAR survey of 2012.
