Type and Period (1)
April 2015. Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty National Mapping Programme.
Two probable First World War pillboxes are visible as extant buildings (since levelled) on aerial photographs (S1). Typically for the period they appear to have been circular in plan. They are shown on an historic Ordnance Survey map from 1938 (S2), but not one from 1905 (S3). Later aerial photographs indicate that they have been levelled.
