The US Assault Training Centre opened in the late summer of 1943. The Americans constructed a variety of fortifications and obstacles modelled on German coastal defences. Different areas of beach and dunes were designated for particular types of training exercise. Training commenced in September 1943, with 2 to 3 week training courses for each infantry unit.

Site visited in February and May 1995. A number of concrete training structures survive in the Braunton Burrows Training Area. These are recorded as subsheets. There and other features are recorded on Royal Air Force aerial photographs of 1946 and a number are also on the Nature Conservancy Council's habitat map of 1989.


Bass, R. T., 1996, Guide to the US Assault Training Centre North Devon (Un-published). SDV325695.

The brief of the Assault Training Centre was to train combat units under realistic battle conditions, including overcoming on and off-shore obstacles, reduction of fortifications, repulsing of counter attacks and establishing of the beach head. Construction work began on training aids after 7/8/1943 with the arrival of Companies C, E, and F of the US 398th Engineer General Service Regiment. Facilities included a full scale German-type 'Hedgehog' and full-scale obstacles and individual fortifications of various types sited along the sheltered beaches (including Croyde and Woolacombe). Also mock-ups of various types of landing craft, obstacle courses, combat ranges and observation towers. Accommodation was in tent cities on the golf course and at the hutted Braunton Camp. The ranges, pillboxes, roads and other aids built by the 398th were subsequently maintained and rebuilt by the 146th Engineer Combat Battalion that had arrived by 27/10/1943. Details of training programme and individual structures given. After D-day base given over to the 18th Field Force Replacement Depot to house and feed replacement troops on their way to Europe. Beach Estuary Yellow around Crow Neck to Crow Point at the southern end of Braunton Burrows was covered in obstacles likely to be found on Normandy beaches.

At Braunton Training Aids Nos 37-45, as recorded on US army plans, form a long north to south line parallel to the coast from the southwest tip of Strawberry Ridge through Wintergreen Slack, The Roughs, west of Corkscrew Slack through the northwest corner of Bush Grass Slack to the north end of Beach Head Slack. Area A covered the southern part of Braunton Burrows with constructions including mock-up areas, an assembly area and five Estuary Beaches. Area B covered the south western part of Braunton Burrows with constructions including engineer obstacle courses, pillboxes, demolition range and two Estuary Beaches. Area C spanned the central part of Braunton Burrows with the training ranges concentrated in the coastal strip with pillbox-sized concrete structures running parallel to the shore. Constructions included engineer nad infantry demolition ranges, rocket range and Saunton Blue and Yellow Beaches as well as part of Estuary Red Beach. Area D at the northern end of Braunton Burrows contained the greatest concentration and diversity of assault ranges and training constructions. The majority were built on Saunton Golf Course and were subsequently demolished or buried. Constructions included a flamethrower range, tank trap, target pits, radio towers, 'Hedgehog', pillboxes and Saunton Green, Yellow and Red Beaches.
