Oct 1996:A double-ended pillbox bisects the sea wall at this point. The earth and grass-covered wall has been built up since World War Two; just 6ft of the pillbox projects from the seaward side and 3ft from the landward. The top of the bank is now some 4ft above the pillbox and there is a post-war earth-retaining wall across the centre.
