Lossie WW2 Defences
In 1940, Britain was under threat of German invasion. As a result, a plan was put into action to defend any coastline where the enemy could easily land.
The Moray coastal defences ran between Cullen Bay and Findhorn Bay, through today’s Lossie and Roseisle Forests.
Within the forest at Lossie, there’s evidence of the variety of defences constructed. Firstly, there are the concrete foundations of a military camp. This is where the soldiers who constructed and manned the defences lived.
Concrete anti-tank blocks ran the full length of the defences. They are no longer complete but long sections of the line are still visible on the edge of the forest.
