somerset pillboxes                                  


























This Type 24 pillbox is in the Horn Moor area of Forton.  There are many defensive structures here but a lot of them are either on private property or overgrown.

Also at Forton, this pillbox is not too overgrown, the side nearest the road and the rear side are reasonably clear of foliage but watch out for the barbed wire.  The large machine-gun embrasure with it's steel shutter, in the right of the photo, faces south-east (165 deg.).
