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"

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.
