Section Post: DoB ID: S0012775

This is the first of a series of pillbox type defences in the environs of Havant and Emsworth along an area roughly bounded by the railway to the west, and the B2148 Emsworth - Horndean road. This section post has a basic outline that's best described as being a structure that is boomerang or chevron shaped. It differs slightly from this however in that it has a short straight centre section (which contains the entrance at the rear) inserted between the two angled sides. A brick built section post designed for up to 8 - 10 men, it's alongside the footpath overlooking open ground between Hermitage and Westbourne. There are a total of 11 embrasures facing NE, E, and SE. There are no embrasures at the NW and SW ends.
