Pillbox in hedgerow at Star Lane, Avening
Hedge growth has all but hidden this WW2 pillbox once part of "Stop Line Green" protecting Bristol from an invader attacking from the east. The pillbox (officially a thick-walled type 24 pillbox) was prefabricated and originally formed part of extensive anti-tank defences in the area.
