Pillbox (unclassified): DoB ID: S0012777

Somewhat ambiguously this is also classified as a pillbox/section post, presumably because it does bear some resemblance to a small section post or blockhouse. It is not L-shaped as described on the national database, but rectangular, with three south facing embrasures, and an entrance in the centre on the north side with loopholes at each end facing east and west. It is located within private grounds that once overlooked open ground bounded by the railway, Prospect Lane, and the Emsworth - Horndean road. It is heavily overgrown.
