    There were mutterings in the specialised historical press/societies about 'modern' fortifications etc disappearing under new developments some while back - if I remember correctly! Is this an attempt to keep the record 'on the ground' so that interested parties can still see the original intentions of the fortifications? If so I applaud the idea - there are far too many lone objects standing around that give the casual or none informed observer no idea what went on in those locations during WW11

    H pixie would this be what you have found

    It's on the defence of Britain data base E27162

    the data base also shows the pillbox number E09643 and mentions that in post war aerial photos it was to the west of an anti tank ditch
