Pillbox near Woolaston
Pillbox near Woolaston
This type 26 pillbox constructed in 1940 is to be found above a small quarry on the east side of the Gloucester-Chepstow railway line near Woolaston. The entrance to the pillbox is in the centre of the picture with the main field of fire to the right over the fields adjoining the river Severn. As the hedgerow grows the pillbox will soon be well hidden until next winter.
