TM3540 : Gun control tower, East Lane, Bawdsey

taken 3 years ago, near to Bawdsey, Suffolk, Great Britain

Gun control tower, East Lane, Bawdsey
Gun control tower, East Lane, Bawdsey
This tower has been well documented on Geograph before but it may be worth comparing to watch its deterioration. Especially those rusting reinforcing rods which are breaking layers of concrete off the outside.

Actually it doesn't seem much worse than the 2007 photo TM3540 : Fire control tower at East Lane Battery, Bawdsey.

On the other side of the road is a First World War pillbox.
