Semi-Submerged Pillbox
Semi-Submerged Pillbox
The pillbox was built for World War II as part of the coastal military defences in the Holderness area nearly eighty years ago. It's now about a hundred metres from the current cliff edge. Coastal erosion has been about 3 metres per year, so when it was built, it will have been about 140m on shore at that time! The pillbox's exact position is currently at TA 32124,30909 if anyone ever wants to see if it has moved since 21st. May 2017!
