Layers of History Freiston Shore Volunteer Induction Day
August 1, 2017, 9:30am - August 1, 2017, 4:00pm
Have you ever wondered what the strange structures are at Freiston Shore?
Our #LayersofHistory volunteers have been very busy unearthing Revesby's secrets since March and we're about to start looking at Freiston Shore.
The day will include information on the Layers of History project and how to become a volunteer, taster activities including archaeological surveys and looking at aerial photos and maps, and a tour of the site, including the World War Two structures.
If you're interested in attending this volunteer induction day, learning about Freiston Shore, surveying the structures, delving into the archives and discovering the area's hidden histories drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll invite you to the event.
Is this page defunct? I did find your forum but the posts are extremely hard to read for my old eyes - and it's not very user-friendly.

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.
