Adisham Viaduct

Viaduct Pillboxes.

Adisham Viaduct in East Kent is unusual in that it has two pillboxes built into the recesses of the archways.

This photo shows a close-up of the wall and end of one of the pillboxes, the wall is approximately 6ft high and 2 bricks wide. What is fascinating about this pillbox is that it utilises the roof of the arch as its own’roof’.

The final photo shows the reinforced concrete end with a single loophole.
