Pillbox,on the south bank of the River Thames,just above the high water mark ,Thamesmead West
Some nice bits of innovation there: secondary coat of camouflage using corrugated sheets as a former?
It looked like that the rough concrete had been overlaid on the original structure.
much of it has fallen off.
Possibly looks like sheeting ( photo of the last piece of corrugated sheet left) was added before the rough concrete.
Im not sure if this was original or post war attempting to seal the structure
It was good to be able to get inside a pillbox and view outwards.
What - no heron sitting on top - you are slipping sir
Bet the smell was nice once inside
Did you find any WW2 plastic or was it all modern day
Things would have been desperate if this pill box had been used in anger.
You can see there was a belief that defence was possible and this kept the British public going.
I believe this may have been a mine-watching post - Looking out for parachute mines dropped during air-raids on the approch to london's docklands.
