Summary[edit]

Description
English: Second World War bunker in Newlands Plantation, New Forest Most of the trees surrounding this "battle headquarters" bunker must have been planted after the end of the 1939-45 war - then there would have been a good view of the Ibsley airfield and surroundings from this position on a spur of Ibsley Common. The brick and concrete structure, divided into several rooms, survives well up here - although it contains a small amount of modern-day litter. There are the remains of several small WWII structures up on Ibsley Common.

The following is a short extract from the R.A.F. Ibsley Historical group website ( http://www.rafibsley.co.uk/ ):

"The Battle Headquarters at Ibsley was built deep into the hillside of Newlands, off the Moyles Court – Gorley Road, behind Keepers Cottage. This is still there today. It has two observation post blocks, which is considered to be unique. It was suggested the reason for this is, probably, that the first was originally intended to cover the old airfield, but when the runway was extended southward to Ivy Lane the field of vision had to be increased, hence the second observation post block."
