A small rectangular structure is visible on oblique aerial photographs taken in 1958. It appears to have a flat roof and although it may be a Second World War military building its location is not obviously defensive and it may be a modern structure related to the golf course. It is not visible on any other available aerial photographs but remains may survive below tree cover. The photograph could not be rectified and the mapped location is approximate.
