Default Pillboxes around RAF Henlow

As i manage to locate each one i shall add some photos to this thread.

First off the Type FW3/22 at Grid Referance TL 1566 3769 opposite what is now called the Airman pub no longer remains, i have had a good look and there is no remains there.

Next we move east to another FW3/22 at Grid Referance TL 1643 3775 which remains amasingly intact with only a few packs of cigarettes scatterd around despite being so easy to reach as its next to a main road. On with the photos. Please note i have been very carefull to show as little as possible of the active RAF Airfield behind the Pilbox:

And a view back to the road:

Moving inside i was amased to find this writing survives:

And some general views inside, first of all from one of the slots covering the road:

Next up i will be attempting to find some of the more remote ones, there are at least one i will not be able to gain acsess to sadly.
