Military training area?

Either that or aliens.

Edited to add - the airfield just East of there is RAF, used by the rescue bods, so its possible that its some kind of training area.

Make sure Microsoft VE (Aerial) is selected in the top left hand box, not Google Maps. That should sort it
If you click the link though I would have thought it should come straight up, so thats a little strange, maybe the head has realised he's been discovered!

I think it is where the armed forces do training on amphibious landings / testing of amphibious landing vehicles and kit.

The RNLI also tested the new tractors for the next generation fast carriage boat (FCB 2) there.
