Pillbox type FW3/22 (variant): DoB ID S0012718

Interior view (1). The small embrasure to the right of the entrance doorway was for a pistol, or for grenade throwing. The large embrasure with its swivel mounting on the sill for a light machine gun, is one of five similar loopholes in the pillbox, the interior of which is divided by a concrete faced blast wall. There are also remnants of wooden shelving below some of the embrasures.
