Rugby Anti-Tank Defences

A Collection of Roadblock Cylinders and Rails.

These road block components were found along Brownsover Lane just off the A246 near Rugby. A group of cylinders covered in moss were laying on a fields edge just beside a right hand bend.

Continuing down the lane towards the Ambulance station a further cylinder was seen laying beside a fence, not far from this on the opposite side of the road was a collection of vertical rails that had been removed and dumped still embedded in their concrete bases.
