somerset pillboxes                                  


























North-west of the Old Canal Inn at Wrantage, up on the bed of the old Taunton & Chard canal, lies this 6 pounder anti-tank gun emplacement. The front and left side of the structure are overgrown.

[Map ref. ST 30633 22697]

Here, inside the emplacement, is the pedestal upon which the Hotchkiss 6 pounder gun would have been mounted. 

Below the juvenile graffiti you can see three of the four ammunition lockers which are situated around the rear of the emplacement.

The structure faces south-west (235 deg.) toward the A378.
