Abstract

Oxford Archaeology carried out an assessment of defence structures within the SANGS area of development at the Queen Elizabeth Barracks, Church Crookham. Taylor Wimpey are retaining these significant features of our national history dating from the Second World War within the landscape, including Type-24 pillboxes and four Vickers gun emplacements situated around two hilltop positions. This assessment identified 18 structures, within this nationally significant defence area above Ewshot. This significance is a result of the condition, density and group value of the structures within a landscape which has little changed since the Second World War. This document sets out management recommendations to ensure a long-term sustainable future for the structures, and provides guidance for how they may be appreciated by the local community and military enthusiasts.
