Chain Home radar station: DoB ID: e25089
Pillbox (type FW3/25): DoB ID S0000069

Moving south along the coast path, and just off to the left is a circular shuttered concrete pillbox with three embrasures 1 ft square on the outside, widening to 20 ins x 15 ins on the inside. Although I didn't see them, there are apparently small wooden shelves under each embrasure supported by iron brackets.
