Pill Boxes at Tutt Hill, Westwell Leacon, Nr Charing, Kent. Archaeological and Photographic Record.

Summary

Pill Boxes at Tutt Hill. Pill Box A, south east elevation.

Two World War II Pill Boxes were recorded in advance of their demolition prior to the construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. The two shuttered concrete structures were built as part of the World War II 1940 defence strategy protecting the country from invasion. They were specifically designed to protect the nearby Maidstone to London railway line. The buildings are examples of the 'Type 24' Pill Box. The six sided structures have one doorway, facing south-west, flanked by two windows. The remaining walls all have a central window providing all round visibility. A brick baffle structure, protecting the doorway and dividing the internal space was largely intact in Pill Box A and had been removed from Pill Box B, but was visible in outline on the ceiling.
