Overgrown WWII pillbox
Overgrown WWII pillbox
Pillbox (Type FW3/24), erected in 1940/41 as part of the coastal crust defences, located on a boundary separating two fields near Lowlands Farm; it has brick shuttering and steel rods for securing camouflage nets on the roof, now overgrown with brambles. Defence of Britain database ID: S0000899.

In an effort to prevent an anticipated German invasion, a network of defences, the most common being so-called pillboxes, was constructed in 1940 at strategic points, along rivers and canals, as well as along the coast and on airfields. It is estimated that less than 6,000 of a total of 28,000 pillboxes still survive. LinkExternal link
