Long Wood
Long Wood
A World War II Starfish decoy site (SF13e), part of the Clyde AA battery defences, was located at Long Wood (also known as James' Wood) on Bonnyton Moor about two miles west of the village. The starfish had three distinctive groups of basket fires which would have been packed with pitch and fuel soaked materials, fire break trenches and a decoy control bunker. Starfish was the codename given to a system of Special Fire or SF decoys. The SF codename denoted civil decoys.
