Some Welsh Pillboxes
These are some of the pillboxes I have come across while in Wales. I had not gone out intentionally to find them but for the fact I kept a caravan in Built Wells so thought I'd see what was round there defense wise. What I found surprised me. I checked out the Defense of Britain site and saw there were some defenses left.
Outside town and over near the golf course you can see this pillbox.
Looking at the embrasures which are larger that the ones I have normally seen.
Entrance is down the steps
The view out of an embrasure
and a shot of it from the outside.
This pillbox I came across while looking at an old dismantled railway on GE. It would have over looked a railway bridge at Natmel
Entrance was beside the railway line.
Going inside this corrugated iron shuttering is coming away and nearly took my scalp off.
The ricochet wall was odd in that it was rased.
Some relics still remain like the wood shelf in front of the embrasure.
