Cox’s Hill

Cox Hill, Lawford, Essex

I found the PSG web site very interesting and was able to identify the Pillbox near to where I live. It’s an Allan-Williams Turret and is located in a field on top of Coxs Hill in Lawford near to Manningtree Railway Station, Essex. It faces north towards the station.


I used to play in it when I was a boy but unfortunately it has now lost its round lid and the cover for the pit on the side. All these where there when I used to play there in the 60’s.
