Yarnold Shelter pillbox at the RAF Coltishall main gate
This style of pillbox closely resembles the Norcon type but is a much later design. These came into existence in the early 1970s with the ever growing terrorist threat. It is a simple construction manufactured from concrete pipe normally used for culverts with three holes and a doorway precut before erection.
