To the west of the previous structures, this Type 24 beach defence pillbox lies to the south of the West Somerset Railway track and faces  northward.  Some of the steel loophole shutters remain.  This structure was photographed from a train as there is no public access to the land on which it stands and it is not visible from the beach.

From the west.  The structure was disguised as a railway platelayer's hut during the war and the imitation chimney still stands.
