Just had a lovely spring walk past the spigot mortar emplacement to the east of Brookmans Park. I remember reporting this to the Council for British Archeology's Defence of Britain survey  almost 10 years ago to be told that their project was "now complete" and they couldn't update their website with new information (yes, I know, amazing). 

So this impressive and valuable piece of history - according to official records - doesn't exist. But, of course, it does. In fact I wrote a piece about it in May 2003 for this site so that it was online for people to find.

So here, before the leaves block the view, are some pictures of our local spigot mortar emplacement which doesn't feature in the official national records because someone couldn't figure out how to use the internet.
