    Pillbox by the tunnel entrance Holcombe on the line between Teignmouth and Dawlish in south Devon.
    Didn't get any closer as it would have meant either getting my feet wet or trespassing on the railway and I wasn't prepared to do either!

    On a recent visit to Derbyshire I came across a stunning pillbox, it has no shuttering and is very tall so I imagine it would have had steps to the rear at some point.
    The Loopholes have no shields inside at all and it is very clean and tidy inside.
    "She that must be obeyed" is having a nose round in the pics.

    I also came across this one in the grounds of the huge JCB World Headquaters just near Alton Towers.
    It has sunk into the ground a fair bit and has a huge amount of graffiti inside it, also the loopholes have remains of wood still bolted below them for shelves maybe ?

    Default Holkham, Norfolk, Pill boxes

    These two were along Queen Anne's drive leading down to the beach at Holkham, one was very close to the road and easy to get in, the other was a way back in a field, so I didn't climb over and photograph the inside, they both seemed in fair condition, just sadly full of rubbish

    Did you visit any of the others near that one Steve? All but one are fairly easy to get to. Photos earlier in this thread.

    The link takes you to a YouTube video on the pillbox line that was the landward defence for Falmouth.
