It didn’t rain, so I went out with my camera today. I actually went out exploring twice; I’ll do a separate post for the other trip which was just a few iPhone snaps.

This Second World War bunker formed part of the Arun-Ouse Stop Line,  as the area was thought to be one of the major routes towards London. This particular pillbox is anti-infantry, based on the small holes overlooking the bridge. Nothing much bigger than a light machine gun would fit through these, and there are pairs of blocks on the floor for the guns’ supports. I think this is a Type 24 pillbox, more information here at the Pillbox Study Group. Despite my research it was quite difficult to find, but once you know it is fairly easy to get to.
