Don't get annoyed Stace, it won't do any good. :?

I haven't been over the Marshes at Brancaster for over thirty years, but there did used to be a little house over on Scolt Head that was used by bird watchers I think. There are also some millitary installations at Brancaster too, but I don't know anything about them.

Your best bet would be to contact the RSPB as they have a warden there and he will know what is there and the history of it I'm sure.

Sorry I can't help, but that's why I didn't answer your query, because I don't know.

If you find out, let us all know as we all love learning!

Cheers.

Teddy

Like Teddy I didn't reply because I didn't know the answer.
That's why I don't reply to many threads on this forum :D

Hi Stace

Watch Out!
First thing is the legal situation as you could well be trespassing, it belongs to someone I should think.
Secondly, it could be dangerous, that could be why it was bricked up in the first place.
IF you decide that you are going to carry on with your exploration anyway, make sure you are not alone and that someone else knows where you are and what time you will be returning. I know I sound like an old granny, but, we read time and time again about people getting trapped or injured in places where they shouldn't be and this sort of thing is on Casualty every week! :shock: :lol:

A lot of the stuff along the edge at Brancaster is owned by the military.
Our member Alistair is somewhat of a expert on such things military in
the area. When/if he comes back on I am sure he will be able to tell you.
As Teddy says, be careful Stace.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

I think it maybe the old "Royal Observer Corps" place that Alistair has posted
on here about some time ago. They were always buried I think.
