An obstacle built to stop the progress of tanks or armoured vehicles of an invading force. These date to the Second World War when it was feared that Britain could be invaded and can include lengths of ditch, walls or concrete blocks. Tank traps are usually found on strategically important routes and around locations that were thought necessary to defend.
