Removal of vegetation from two groups of anti-tank cubes in the vineyard and design of an interpretation board. The foundation of one of the blocks was excavated and painted with a camouflage scheme as described by archive documents of 1940.

Some graffiti (a representation of a robin) etched in render was recorded on one block. Wartime barbed wire corkscrew pickets were found in an adjacent treeline and some excavated alongside one of the blocks.
