Wallsend, aircraft obstructions
Lines of aircraft obstructions of WW2 mapped from air photographs of wartime period. These lie 100m north-east of an anti aircraft gun battery. The aircraft obstructions are arranged at right angles in a grid formation, in an area 250m x 250m and formed by a ditch with adjacent lines of upcast spoil. The features have since been levelled.
