Oaklands Lane Wall

Many people have asked me about the wall that stands in the field along side Oaklands Lane. What is it? What was the building like? Was it a building?

No photographs of the original structure have come to light (yet) but during the wars, this field was used  for mortar training. It is possible that the structure was used for storage or target practice.

2010: A more recent photo shows the wall now has a huge crack down the middle.

This picture, taken on 30th Sept 2013, shows that the walls days are now numbered. Half of it has now collapsed (or was it pushed I wonder). A land mark for many years in Biggin Hill.
