Pillbox on Benfleet Creek
Pillbox on Benfleet Creek
This pillbox on Benfleet Creek has seen better days; its concrete skin has fallen away revealing that this block house is of brick construction which would not afford much protection against a tank round. In the background you can just see the A130 to Canvey Island.
