הסליק - מקום קטן המנציח תקופה גדולה
בשנים 1943-1948, בתקופת המאבק נגד השלטון הבריטי, השתמש ארגון "ההגנה" במקום הזה להסתיר בו נשק.
הסליק נחפר לעומק של ארבע מטרים וקירותיו צופו בזפת מיוחדת לאטימה בפני רטיבות. מעל לסליק נבנה דיר עגלות ובו שתי שקתות בטון. אחת השקתות הסתובבה על ציר וכיסתה את פיר הירידה למפלס התחתון. עגלות וחבילות חציר הסוו את השוקת.
הסליק היה פעיל בלילות. ממנו הוצא הנשק לפעולות "ההגנה", ולאחר סיום הפעולות הוחזר אליו. בקרבת המבנה פוזרו כלים חקלאיים ממתכת כדי לשבש את מגלי המתכות (מגלי מוקשים) של הבריטים.
"בשבת השחורה" (29.6.1946) ניסו הבריטים לגלות אותו ולא הצליחו.

The Slick - a small place that commemorates a great period
In the years 1943-1948, during the struggle against British rule, the Haganah used this place to hide weapons.
The slick was excavated to a depth of four meters and its walls were coated with special tar to seal against moisture. A wagon house with two concrete abreuvoirs was built above the slick. One of the launches rotated on an axis and covered the shaft of descent to the lower level. Carts and bales of hay disguised the abreuvoir.
The Slick was active at night. From it the weapon was taken out for the "Hagana" operations, and after the end of the operations it was returned to the Slick. Metal utensils were scattered near the building to disrupt the British metal detectors (mine detectors).
On "Black Saturday" (June 29, 1946) the British tried to find it and were unsuccessful.
