Norfolk Pillboxes

Tony Hendry and son Karl have been about and about looking at the local defences near their home in Norfolk.

It’s great to see a new generation taking a keen interest in military concrete!

This Pillbox is located on the A47 on the right side just before you go into Gt Yarmouth. It still has a steel door on & a low gun port which we have not seen before to one side. There is also another box across the road which can be seen in the photo.

This photo is of the brick pillbox at East Dereham Railway Station, now home of the Mid Norfolk Railway.


This is a second pillbox in Dereham. It is positioned near the railway line.


This pillbox is located in the village of Hoe

It is quite over-grown but you can still get inside it. Again it too is close to the railway line with open fields to the front & a bridge crossing the line to the rear.

Defence Structures and sites of all types both above and below ground can be very dangerous. Serious injury or even death can arise from unauthorised entry into such sites and structures. Join a responsible club, group or society who can arrange official visits. The Pillbox Study Group accepts no responsibility for any damages or injuries caused by ignoring this advice. 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.
