At the northern end of the possible air raid shelter block (HER16098) is the foot of a concrete ramp which curves south to rise between the block and the rear wall of The Cottage (HER16100) behind it. The demolitionof the 'air raid shelters' revealed evidence of a series of chambers beneath the ramp. A storeroom, acceessible from the 'air raid shelter range' was one of the chambers. The ramp is related to the former Cattle Sanatorium which formerly occupied the site (HER4685).
