INFORMATION:

No.3 Wall target was used for trials on the Barnes Wallis bouncing bomb. The wall was made of reinforced concrete and was 8ft high, 6ft thick and 20ft long and faced with 2inches of armour plate. It was so difficult to remove, that the foundations were undermined and the wall was just buried????
