Latchmore Bottom

Nestled amongst the wet bog and heathland filling Latchmore Bottom are the remains of an out laying marker associated with the nearby Ashley Ranges. The feature consists of 15, square , shuttered concrete light housings, of which only 13 remain visible and of those only one of which retains its internal light fittings. The concrete housings are 46cm square, 28cm high (external), 20cm (internal), with 7.5cm thick walls and two 10cm diameter pipe holes for connecting cables and are placed in a circle of chalk 25m in diameter. There must be some associated features nearby as this feature's so far out it surely required an independent power supply; adjacent there is a Holly covered knoll which may bear investigation.
