Pillbox: EDoB ID: S0015347

This WW2 pillbox is most unusual in having had a searchlight emplacement built on top of it. Between the two levels there is an external surrounding walkway with a handrail. The pillbox has three embrasures, facing N, E, and W, in alternate faces, now blocked up. The searchlight building now has windows fitted and is incorporated into a timber building.
