The land, between Burton Road and Kings Avenue and on the market with Taylor Engley, was used as rifle range and more recently as a scout hut, according to the estate agents.

The hut, inaccessible by vehicle, has three rooms, is 90-foot long and made from corrugated steel, according to Taylor Engley.

The structure also has electricity provided by an on-site pylon, which is located in the lightly wooded area outside the building.

An open day to view the property will be held on Saturday (February 1) from 10am to 11am.

A Nissen Hut is a prefabricated steel structure for military use, especially as barracks, made from a half-cylindrical skin of corrugated steel.

Designed during the First World War by the American-born engineer and inventor Major Peter Norman Nissen, it was used extensively during the Second World War.
