Bomb Craters – North of Beaulieu Road Station

Bomb Crater at Fulliford Passage
Author: Paul Kelly

My wife and I were out walking and came across a number of what appear to be bomb craters around Fulliford Passage.  It’s difficult to be to be certain on the ground, but a line from the eastern group to the western group looked to be around 30-40 degrees, which is of course a good angle to try and cut a linear feature like a railway.  They’re approximately 1 Km north of Beaulieu Road Station. Most are on the west side, but some are on the east of the railway line, which may have been the target.  There is a gap between the E & W craters (some of which display ‘heave’ around them) where the line passes, so if the railway was indeed the target it was either hit and repaired or got very lucky!

Date: 1939
