On the 30th of September 2020, a Level 2 Historic Building Survey was undertaken by Oxford Archaeology East on a Nissen type hut on land adjacent to No. 2 Church Lane Ellington in Cambridgeshire. This type of structure was used for accommodation and storage by the military since the First World War. The hut was constructed of curved corrugated asbestos sheeting which indicates it dated from the Second World War or later. The hut at Ellington shows no evidence of any previous military use. It was erected on the plot adjacent to No. 2 Church Lane, for use as an animal shelter and storage facility.
