Pill Box in Upper Godney
Pill Box in Upper Godney
This Pill Box is just to the south of the river Sheppey and is nowhere near as obvious as the other pill box in this square as it is behind a farm making it somewhat inaccessible. It is a Type 29 Pill Box on 'Stop Line Green'.

Stop Line Green was a 100 mile continuous semi-circular defensive line (also known as Bristol Outer Defences). It ran from Highbridge on the Bristol Channel in the south to Upper Framilode on the river Severn in the north. It was a last line of defence against an attack from the east and was built on the assumption that the Germans had already advanced this far west. It was designed to defend Bristol and so keep the port open for evacuation, resupply or reinforcements. There were many other 'stop lines' in Southern Britain, with different colour codes, all designed to be a hindrance to tanks in the event of an invasion. (Taken from 'Warwalks - Stop Line Green' by Major Green - 1999.)
