News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Naval Bombing Decoy N12/LO1

A Second World War bombing decoy located in Stoke. It was built as part of the 'N-series' of naval decoys to deflect enemy bombing from Chatham Dockyard. This was a 'QF' decoy. It is referenced as being in use during 1941. Aerial photos show that the control building, which would have housed an operations room and provided the decoy crew with shelter, was probably at TQ816 764.
