Cromer Defences

Norfolk is a county famous for it’s coastal erosion problems and the area around Cromer is certainly no exception. This pillbox is located approximately half a mile north of the Pier and undoubtedly ‘slumped’ down onto the beach below as the very soft ‘glacial till’ material of the cliffs was washed away. It is so deeply buried into the beach that it is impossible to identify its type. Unfortunately, it was also impossible to get a photo from above as the cliffs are in such a precarious state.
