T e Gann and inland : T e gravel pits in this area, to the north of Dale, provided the materials for the building of Dale Airfi eld, and the incline plane along which the materials were transported can still be seen. Alongside the shoreline road are painted concrete cylinders, relics of wartime roadblocks to be used in the event of invasion. T e main accommodation site for Dale Airfi eld was nearby at Crabhall Farm (SM802 074); this is on private land but the huts can be seen from the road, and there are other dispersed remnants of the airfi eld visible on the road past Philbeach Farm towards Marloes. T ese include the concrete footings of the WAAF accommodation site near the road junction and two concrete huts in a fi eld a short distance further on which are the remains of a wireless transmission site.
