Two structures, circa 3.5 by 8 metres in plan, are visible on aerial photographs taken between 1946 and 2000, in parkland to the south and east of Grantlands. They straddle two linear boundaries depicted on the late-19th century mapping which are aligned roughly north to south, and appear to have pitched roofs, with an open front and back on the long sides, on aerial photographs taken in 1986. They are therefore considered more likely to be stores or shelters connected to Grantlands estate rather than military structures associated with the nearby Second World War camp (MDV107878). They are not depicted on the available historic maps, suggesting that they post-date 1906, and appear to have been demolished after 2000. The ground surface in these two locations is pale and uneven on aerial photographs taken in 2010, suggesting that some remains probably survive.
