Me niether, most pill boxes along the river are in the same condition as this one. Some have river silt & mud in them.

No way would I have defended in one of those, would take my chances in open countryside. This one looks a well preserved example, many on the East coast are falling, or fallen into the sea due to coastal erosion.

Interesting, and a very beautiful shot. Love the lighting.

Alaska has a few of those too, on Kodiak Island and in the Aleutians. Probably not nearly as many as you have.

About WurzelDave

WurzelDave

I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300 & SX150 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer!
