Pillbox Work – 8th May 2024

Pete Coe, and his army pal Graham Cosham led a team of volunteers to prepare the Pillbox for active service.  The bricked up southern embrasure was opened up, and a steel frame and removable plate fitted.  Holes were drilled in the east and west embrasures for ventilation.  The door was painted in anti-vandal paint, and a new set of steps has been installed internally.
