Travelling south along the Bridgwater & Taunton Canal we come to Huntworth.  This pillbox is at the bottom of a cottage garden alongside the canal.  It has been owned by British Waterways and was used by their employees as a foul weather shelter.  The ownership of the box has now passed to the owners of the cottage.  Standing on private property, the box appears to have escaped the usual graffiti suffered by the majority of boxes.  Huntworth had, I believe, six pillboxes on the Stop Line, one has been completely demolished and the other three I cannot find.
