The owners of the Sedlescombe Organic Vineyard contacted SMHS asking for some information about the line of World War Two concrete anti-tank blocks (dragons' teeth) that pass through their land.
An initial assessment identified three distinct groups of blocks; two were obscured by thick vegetation and so permission was given to clear them with a view to creating an interpretation panel to satisfy visitors' curiosity as to their purpose.
Other interesting facets of the project were the reconstruction of a World War Two-style infantry slit trench and the excavation and camouflage painting of one of the dragon's teeth.
The project was finally completed in October 2014 with the erection of an interpretation panel near some of the dragon's teeth that SMHS had worked on.
For just £10 per year, you can join SMHS and be involved in our projects!
