Two non-standard pillboxes with connecting underground passage. The pillbox facing N has two or three N-facing embrasures and one S-facing. The smaller pillbox has two N-facing embrasures, and one E-facing and one S-facing. Access into the pillboxes requires a ladder. The internal walls appear to be brick-faced. There are slabs over the N-facing embrasures to stop soil ingress and for camouflage. Situated on a valley side to control N-S movement on the Holmfirth Road below. with PLAN drawn on form.
