I believe from a walk around the area, on the beach at Brancaster, North Norfolk in the dunes there may be a small bunker with a couple of rooms, I'm not sure if anyone has heard or known about this but I just thought it may be of interest as it's right next to the Brancaster Golf Club, which I beleve has been going for a 100 years or so which is a red brick building possibly early 1900's.

Brancaster Beach looks a damm interesting place if you have the Defence of Britain overlays for Google Earth. Several pillboxes, machine gun emplacements, a coastal battery, spigot mortar, anti tank gun emplacement and the remains of a couple of tanks.

That may have been what was found but it's worth mentioning the old ship hotel in brancaster is very good for food, I've eaten there 6 times or more now, it's really recommended.

Yep, this was part of Norfolk's 'Costal Crust' during WW2, one of Chris Richmonds videos shows the Brancaster battery in all it's (now limited) glory
