Chain Home Station: EDoB ID: e11352
Pillbox: EDoB ID:e10042

The pillbox at one time stood within the line of the outer perimeter fence which has since been removed, presumably for scrap. The fence literally went along and onto the pillbox roof, and continued on the other side. The remains are visible today as embedded cut-down stumps, maintaining the same line as they once did in the centre of the pillbox roof.
