More information : A low square structure, possibly constructed from concrete and approximately 5 metres square, can be seen on aerial photographs of the 1940s onwards, centred on circa SS 76234522, Brendon parish. It was probably associated with the Second World War firing range and weapons testing facility which operated over much of Exmoor, including Brendon Common (see NMR UID 1002147), and may have acted as a firing range target. It remains visible on aerial photographs of 1995, although appears to be in poor condition. (1-2)
