    I also dug this big iron target, which i think could be some sort of target as it was on the side on the mound, it seemed to have a few dents in it


    To the side of the mound there is this

    I would think this is a butt hide but it looks only big enough for one person which is strange, unless youve found a bunker thats been bricked up

    Hi Cave, I went inside and it did not look as it had been bricked up so i think your right about it being a hide

    Well the only way to tell would be to see how far the bricks/concrete extend around the mound and how big it is ,which will take a fair time to dig out

    Great finds, is 'The Pile' what you found? If so it really is a rammed site and well done for tracking it down. It looks well worth more visits perhaps even trying to find where the troops fired from. They're bound to have dropped stuff.
    Keep it up Mate.
