A complex of structures is visible in an area of approximately 35 by 100 metres on aerial photographs taken in the 1940s. Two conjoined octagonal structures are located between an L-shaped compartmentalised rectilinear structure and a cross-shaped compartmentalised structure. It is located circa 300 metres west and downslope of the Second World War military hospital (MDV49431), and is tentatively interpreted as water treatment works for the hospital. It is not visible on more recent aerial imagery and seems to have been removed by 1976.
