Two small structures, probably the houses described by the above authorities, are visible on aerial photographs of 1941 to 1950, near the north-eastern tip of Dawlish Warren. They cannot be seen on later aerial photographs available to the survey. They correspond with structures depicted on the Ordnance Survey second edition map of circa 1906 and have not been transcribed. It is possible structural remains survive in-situ.
