Pillbox alongside North Cliff Avenue, Scalby
Pillbox alongside North Cliff Avenue, Scalby
This seemingly incongruous structure, which is set into the edge of North Cliff Golf Course, seems out of place until you look at old-maps to see that it is next to the former Burniston Barracks (Royal Tank Corps). The barracks have long since been re-developed for housing, but the pillbox has been bricked up and left in place. See also TA0390 : Pillbox alongside North Cliff Avenue, Scalby #2
