This Post has been DEMOLISHED.

Visited with Icutyou.

Situated atop a field overlooking the South hams countryside. Nearby stands an unidentified Building which looks as if it may have had ties with the Military.

Bunker has traces of some heavy power cables! Now thats a lot of power, for what?

Most surveys of the area have this bunker as un-known! It may be a power supply/control for a Decoy Town or Airfield located someway from it!

Decoy airfields were built in remote locations within a few miles of the actual bases. These consisted of sets of electric lights arranged to resemble the runway lights of an airfield at night. Decoys were also established around towns such as Falmouth; these replicated the dim lighting visible from the air during ‘blackout’ hours. Later these urban decoys also contained elaborate arrangements of braziers which would be lit once an attack started so that it would appear that the bombs were setting buildings ablaze.

Little remains of such sites.

Any other ideas?
