Pillbox (variant): DoB ID: S0012781

Described on the national database as being of poor design and construction, it's L-shape in plan, and located in woodland at a crossroads between Horndean in the north, and Emsworth in the south. As can be seen, it is very overgrown and has been vandalised inside with paint. It might also be described as a half-section post, a classification that is not officially recognised I hasten to add! It is a design that is repeated in several similar structures in the area.
