Out in the open, quite a distance away from the cover of the hedgerow in Gaunts Road lies this Type 24 pillbox which would probably have been camouflaged as a hay-stack or shed.  The River Parrett estuary can be seen beyond the pillbox and in the background is the hazy outline of Brean Down.

The box, which is to the east of Hill Farm, faces north-west.

  

As the box is on private land it was only possible to get photos of the rear of the structure.
