At Dunball, situated on a high bank by the railway line, at the far end of Station Road, are two Vickers MMG emplacements.  This is the first, badly overgrown, structure.

[Map ref. ST 31305 41130]

The emplacement faces south (172 deg.).

 


 

This is the second structure, on higher ground and overlooking the previous one.

[Map ref. ST 31319 41137]

Facing south-west (216 deg.) toward the River Parrett, the MMG embrasure is in the right of the photo and the right loophole can just be seen over to the left.  Another pair of Vickers MMG emplacements once existed to the east of this position.
