MONUMENT NO. 1453640

DESCRIPTION + /

A Second World War pillbox known as an infantry section post, visible as a structure, was mapped from aerial photographs taken in 1941. Located on the high water line on the shingle of Bossington Beach NNW of Lower House Farm and E of Horner Water in Porlock Bay, the structure consists of two connected covered concrete trenches, forming an arrowhead shape, constructed with a substantial flat concrete roof. Square embrasures are located along each wing facing out to sea. To the rear of the structure, an open area may have contained a light anti-aircraft gun. The structure was still extant in 1958 but was no longer visible in 1979.
