Found a few pillboxes whilst mooching around Redcar this week.

This example at Gare Sands has suffered over the years.

I believe that this is a type FW3/23.

This one is a bit odd. The sea is some way behind the mound at the rear of the pillbox and the firing slits look rather large.

Inside there are some metal hooked brackets. Any idea what these might be for?

View from on the bank behind.

An unusual design with some brick facing.

I am told that the concrete blocks to one side may be for mounting anti-aircraft weapons.
