This pillbox formed part of the perimeter of the defended locality of Kirkleatham Hall during World War 2. It would have been linked to the rest of the defences by a series of anti-tank ditches. It is of a customised design rather than one of the standard layouts
The outer chamber contains four small loop-holes while the inner chamber has a gun platform with three larger embrasures.
The pillbox is in very good condition as it sits on private land and was sufficiently quiet forÂ a family of swallows to be nesting inside.
My thanks go to Barry from Acro Engines and Airframes for arranging my visit to the site.
