taken 9 years ago, near to Monmouth/Trefynwy, Monmouthshire/Sir Fynwy, Great Britain

Pillbox at May Hill, Monmouth
Pillbox at May Hill, Monmouth
This view looks north-west towards the Wye bridge and the town of Monmouth. The WW2 pillbox on the right (with three embrasures visible facing south-west) currently overlooks the roundabout at the junction of the A466 and A4136 and a new LIDL supermarket carpark. Originally, when constructed in 1940, it formed part of the defensive fortifications guarding the bridge and the main railway line (now disused).
