Does anyone from the Southeast know where this might belong?
Its currently been entered in Weardale and it certainly doesn't belong there!!

Even a best guess for a landranger sheet no would get it a bit closer to home, Thanks

You should ask Captain Mainwaring, his platoon was based in Eastgate wasn't it? Laugh

OK I will shut the door on the way out! Laugh

To be slightly more helpful - is it possible the two letters of the NGR are wrong but the numbers are correct?

Don't think so JonnearCfon, cos there is an Eastgate quarry at that location but definitely no chalk. The reference given is "Caves & Tunels in SE England Part 4" so Weardale is definitely out.

Hoped someone else might have actually heard of the place

Just to confuse things, I can only find Eastgates in Norfolk, Peterborough or Weardale area on Streetmap!

What is neded is either AP to correct it himself, or someone who has "Caves & Tunnels in SE England Part 4" to do likewise.
