Full Description

A pillbox is visible at TM54739594 on aerial photographs from 1940 (S1). It may be hexagonal in shape, but the photograph is not clear enough to be certain. It can still be seen on a 1941 aerial photo (S2), and appears to have an associated trench at this date - possibly a weapons pit.
