Lozenge Pillbox

The lozenge type is found only in the Northeast of England. The type is an elongated hexagon in shape with long front and rear walls and two short angled walls at either end. The entrance is offset from the centre of the rear wall and is covered by an attached blast wall. Internally there is an AR wall the runs laterally along the centre of the chamber. There are four embrasures in the front wall and one each in the end walls. The rear wall has two embrasures and sometimes there is an extra embrasure in the blast wall.

The PSG does not encourage members to undertake the ad hoc clearance of vegetation from pillboxes, as it can expose them to physical damage and inappropriate use, it may also contravene a variety of statutory regulations including, listed buildings and SSSI designations. Vegetation clearance should only ever be undertaken as part of a formal arrangement, having sought and obtained permission from the land owner and other necessary authorities. Damaging a listed or scheduled monument can be considered as a Heritage Crime.
