Pillbox stands no more than 3ft above the ground, although there is no evidence to suggest that the ground level has risen. In construction at least two pourings of concrete were made. Corrugated sheeting was used as shuttering. Pillbox has same dimensions as a type 22, each side has a central embrasure. Entrance is low down in one wall, and accessed by steps down. Anti ricochet wall is intact. Around the roof edge is a line of cement which may indicate that some brick work has been removed.
