The site has now been largely levelled but there is an earthwork scarp visible roughly where the magazine was sited. The concrete path leading to it is also extant.

The site of the magazine was located at the end of a concrete road surface at the extreme south of the
site (A on Fig 9). The site has been levelled but there is still an earthwork scarp where the magazine
had previously been sited (Fig 11). The magazine is outside the area of the proposed development
and will therefore be unaffected by it.
