As you can see in these pictures, the condition of the interior is good.

  

This picture, taken through the front-left loophole, shows a wooden bridge which is of the type that would have been removed in 1940 as an invasion precaution (much to the annoyance of those dairy farmers who did not have access to a boat and had to make a detour via the next permanent bridge to reach their animals on the opposite side of the canal until, eventually, temporary bridges were provided).  The permanent bridges would have been protected by demolition chambers and perhaps one or more of the following: vertical, or horizontal, rail anti-tank roadblocks, anti-tank cubes, spigot mortars or pillboxes.
