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/LH1

A Second World War bombing decoy located at Cuckold's Green in Stoke. It was built as part of the 'N-series of naval decoys to deflect bombing from Chatham Dockyard. This was a 'QF' decoy, which consisted of a series of controlled fires lit during an air raid to replicate a target struck by bombs. It is referenced as being in use during 1942. Aerial photos from 1978 show that the site was given over to agricultural use and no features of the decoy survive.
