somerset pillboxes                                  

























Above Watchet harbour lies this 6 pounder coastal defence emplacement. 

[Map ref. ST 07411 43444]

Here, in the left of the photo - and in the photo below, you can see how part of the gun platform has crumbled due to the erosion of it's foundations on the seaward side of the emplacement.

Two concrete lockers which held the Hotchkiss gun's ammunition.

From the harbour slipway, the 6 pdr. position is in the upper centre of the photo.
