Naval Bombing Decoy N12/Vl1

A Second World War Bombing decoy located at Binney Farm on Allhallows Marshes. It was built as part of the 'N-series' of naval decoys to deflect enemy bombing from Chatham Dockyard. This was a 'QF' decoy and is referenced as being in use between August 1941 and March 1942, but could have been active throughout the rest of the war. By 1978 the site had been given over to agricultural use and no features of the decoy survive.
