These buildings were of the same design as used at the old camp at Naas Lane in Lydney. ... the windowed building (bottom photo) is the original Nissen Hut for the searchlight battery. The middle photo is a general view of the huts. I chatted to the farmer and he told me that he has no plans to pull them down. Well worth a visit - but you must get permission".
