Pillbox (unclassified): DoB ID: S0008615

This pillbox is a familiar sight along the main road onto the island, and once would have stood adjacent to a heavy anti-aircraft gun battery in the field nearby. There are two embrasures visible on the south facing side. The entrance is behind, hidden in vegetation.
