In the middle of the car park
on Dunster beach (overlooking Blue Anchor Bay) lies this Type 24 beach
defence pillbox which, in common with many other pillboxes on the west
Somerset coast, is covered in large pebbles which provided an effective
camouflage on the mostly pebble strewn beaches. This structure,
however, is now surrounded by sand.

The rear of the box - all
loopholes and the entrance have been blocked. The low structure in the
foreground may have been built to deflect enemy fire away from the entrance.
The box faces north.
