Runswick Bay – Pillbox and Anti-Tank Cubes

The area around Runswick has a number of wartime defences, as the break in the surrounding cliffs would have made a potential invasion point.

The pillbox is now on the beach due to erosion around its base.

There are a number of anti-tank cubes in the immediate vicinity next to the sailing club, which was once the area of a minefield.
