One of the less obvious aspects of Lundy's archaeology are these shallow trenches dug during the Second World War to impede aircraft landing and taking off. Much of southern England was defended by this and other types of obstruction but most were cleared for agriculture once the immediate threat of invasion in 1940 had passed. Many of the ones on Lundy have also been removed, some as recently as the early 1990s.
