somerset pillboxes                                  


























North of Chard Junction the Taunton Stop Line ran just to the east of the route taken by the Southern Railway and the River Axe, heading south with a brief detour into Dorset and then on down into Devon.  Here in Broom Lane, Tytherleigh, is a road block site situated to the west of the bridge over the River Axe.  There are two huge reinforced concrete blocks, one each side of the road, but they are badly overgrown.

This block, on the northern side of the road, is leaning out into an adjoining field and it's opposite number on the other side of the road is too overgrown to photograph.
