What's behind the garage?
Here's a little something else of interest from my research into some of the unexplained items mentioned on the Pistonheads.com thread. I meant to post this last night. I was looking at the 1945 aerial recon photo (taken by the British Air Force), and decided to try and shade off some of the features for identification. That's what you see below.
The red rectangle is the house, which still exists. The green circle to the north is a large tree (the stump still exists). The light green shading shows approximately where the quarry face is. The interesting bit is the sand coloured shading, which is where I have guessed the driveway / roadways would have been at the time.
You can see better now I hope the track going down into the tunnel we've found. What is interesting is what appears to be the continuation of that track in the other direction, behind the house (where the garage now is) and, unless its my mind tricking me, into a structure that abuts the quarry face. What do you think?
