News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

The first ones look like Hut bases,Looks like one had a cubicle with a drain?
The second looks like an AA holdfast. looking at the "pour" WW1?
The third looks like a WW2 holdfast.
Maybe it's big horse I'm a Londoner. :{

Hi Cliveh

Would the structures with the bolts be Anti-aircraft guns or some form of defence from the 1st/2nd World Wars?  Possibly the other structures could be something to do with the Aerial Rope Walk which fed the Eastern Docks with coal from the Tilmanstone? Looking at the photos its difficult to work out the exact location

Please can anyone help me identify what structures these remains would have been? They're near the site of one of Pearson's old rail lines on the cliffs at Langdon.













Thanks
