    I think so, a quick google seems to indicate it's a type FW3/22, but I know nothing about this type of building at all so not sure if that's correct, sure someone will put me right and confirm what we think.

    Been going past here for donkey's years, a few months ago I noticed this pillbox in the fields from the B4632 between Winchcombe and Cleeve Hill, on the right, Cheltenham direction. The closest that I could get with my zoom lens, and without walking for ages.
