The Pillboxes ranged from Pangbourne to Abingdon at least that is what I thought but looking into it they went further up and were part of which I found out was the Red line. Part of a defence line built to stave off invasion should it have occurred. I had decided to try and find what was left after I noticed some road blocks in the village I live in had been demolished. I had thought at first it would just be a few photos but it turned out into a bit of a marathon which I have yet to finish.
which is a rather nice type 22 set in the bank. The pillbox is in good condition though as the entrance is in the back it is getting filled with debris of leaves and soil through erosion of the bank.
On the other side beside the weir stood another type 22 I can remember but in recent years when the weir was refurbished it was removed.
Next walk along to the Dike Hills at Dorchester for the Next two Type28A’s
