These type of tetrahedra are only found in the SE of Kent according to the records.  These are the ones at Adisham Station,  If you look at the 1946 aerial photographs and zoom in on Shepherdswell Station you can see a big row three deep going across the field opposite the station.

Cross over the railway at the station, there is a footpath leading away from the station.  In the bushes are big concrete tetrahedra like the ones at Bekesbourne.  There used to be some at Shepherdswell but they have been cleared away now.  More can be found by a bridge over the railway just north west of Bekesbourne. All are part of the Corps Stop Line.  johng

A common missed feature of the area is a string of concrete dragons teeth along side the footpath to the railway station.
