Gun Emplacement near Bowers Hall
Gun Emplacement near Bowers Hall
This gun emplacement seems inordinately large to protect the LT&S Railway. The River Thames is 5km away and there is nothing in between but marshes, one can only speculate why one would need a brick built blockhouse to protect what in the 1940s would have been close to the middle of nowhere. Further information received from a visitor to the page reveals this bunker was part of the GHQ line see LinkExternal link
