Gun emplacement on Crimson Hill
Gun emplacement on Crimson Hill
One of a pair of Vickers machine gun pillboxes, forming part of the Second World War Taunton Stop Line. LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) comments that there is a "blast wall in front of door buried in the hill slope". The outlook is over Wrantage; this view looks roughly west, with the nearest buildings at Meare Green, and Stoke Hill beyond. The smoke seems to be coming from somewhere near Bath House Farm on the A358, about 2.5 km away.
