  • Site of a fixed launch ramp for the V1 (doodlebug) rocket. Two large walls gently rise up and pointing directly at London!!! There is a large gap in between these walls and that would have housed the metal launch frame. Thankfully, this was never used to launch any rockets. The Nazi's soon chose to use their mobile launch platforms that could be set up quickly, pretty much anywhere they needed. There are also several curved buildings along the walk. Unfortunately they have been blocked off!!
