I've been meaning to check this one out when visiting relatives on a number of occasions now and finally got round to it! It's a real beaut' I'll think you'll agree! It was basically purposely built in the area to give a better vantage point for defending an anti-tank ditch. It's a good job I was wearing my wellies, otherwise it would have been a pain jumping the stream with a load of camera gear on me! I didn't bother getting a shot of the front because there was a lot of vegetation obscuring it, so much so that you couldn't really see the front loopholes. Also not pictured is the bottom level, which was merely a midge filled cavity, not a lot going on but I suppose that it would have been an ammunition store.
