Chain Home Station: EDoB ID: e11352
Pillbox: EDoB ID: e10045

An eight-sided pillbox, probbly a type 24 is on the E side of the minor road to Tyrie, and opposite the entrance track to Hillhead Farm. It lies very close to the main Receiver Block which can be seen in the field behind. Like other pillboxes on the site, it retains the 'stumps' of the old perimeter fence, whose line once continued unbroken along and over the pillbox roof.
