Anti-tank Blocks: DoB ID: S0016437

Remains of Pillbox and Anti-Tank Blocks. It is perhaps ironic that some of Studland's former wartime coastal defence structures have been destroyed and removed in recent years in order to provide another form of coastal defence on this part of the beach. A line of anti-tank blocks and concrete foundations have been reused as sea defences behind the base (or roof) of a pillbox. Some of the blocks retain their distinctive concrete apexes, and it is thought that they once stood in a line below the present Middle Beach car park.
