Thanks, johnboy.

That link won't work, but a link to 'Kitchener's Camps at Seaford', an archaeological report for English Heritage by Robert Skinner published in 2011, comes up if you Google the title.  It credits the work of Luke Barber of the Sussex Archaeological Society, who gave a very good talk about the camps at a study day at Newhaven Fort a few years ago attended by several GWF pals. 

 

Seaford Museum also has material on the camps and it has been given a recent refurbishment so is worth visiting if anyone's in the area.

Sorry about the link but your description sounds like the same report

Thanks for posting this - I found the report using advice given above and it's a fascinating read. It points out that the last surviving hut was demolished some time between 2005 and 2009, and I can't help thinking some effort should have been made to save it. However, no use crying over split milk...
