Look like trees around outside and a round pit, the other odd shape like a 'blob', is what? I am going to say an amphitheatre

Question is, does the centre go up or down? Looks to me like some form of very heavy, ie railgun or coastal artillery emplacement.

Richard you are right about the first part, but is smaller than an amphitheatre.

It looks as if it could be Andy, would normally not expect to be such a noisy situation.

I used to shoot on an estate near Ashford that has the remains of something very close to this where an airship was based.

I know where that is.

Glad I wasn't around when you were shooting, could have been dangerous. :-D

long time ago Dammed if I can remember the name of the place, lots of deer. That area was called Airship Now back to subject. Is the shape some sort of emplacement? The other thing that comes to mind is mobile radar.

 

Noise important? WW1 sound locator station

Someone has already suggested a sound locator Tony.

 

Not radar this is from 1905 used by the British Army but was copied from another major army of the time.

Ah so you are still around here Bernard. "Shot putting" not really & not a Russian device but was used by another large army of the time.
