The shed in the background at the left is where the Sea cadets (TS Thorfinn) first met in 1963.

The Nissen-hut-shaped structure on right was originally a well camouflaged bunker for use, I believe, as an emergency nerve-centre for OSDef in WW2. Later it became a 'miniature' indoor firing range used by the Army Cadet Force and no doubt others. Firing .22 calibre rifles (Mossbergs usually) in there was my favourite activity as a cadet.
