Monument Number 1547587

Hob Uid: 1547587
Location :
Medway
Hoo St. Werburgh
Grid Ref : TQ7563873223
Summary : A probable Second World War bomb crater, first visible as earthworks on aerial photographs taken in May 1944, has been mapped as part of the English Heritage: Hoo Peninsula Landscape Project. The feature appears as a crater, possibly filled with water and used as a pond, surrounded by an area of grass-covered, up cast earth with overall dimensions of about 24.8m by 15.9m. It is located between the east gate of the Lodge Hill Armaments Depot (Monument 1077634) and the Chattenden Magazine enclosure (Monument 1481790), and just to the south of Lodge Hill Camp (Monument 1545549). If this feature is a bomb crater, it may be evidence of an (apparently minor) air raid on Lodge Hill which took place on the night of 7-8 May 1942, and may be associated with other craters located in the vicinity of the south western part of Lodge Hill Depot (Monuments 1547580, 1547583, 1547584, 1547590).
