The answers to yestrerday's quiz are now up.

Hundreds maybe thousands of pill boxes were built in Southern and Eastern England in WWII. In fear of a land invasion.

Concrete blocks next to a pill box. Designed to stop tanks they are now used to stop cyclists.

Many pill boxes are now bricked up.

Some are homes for horses.

Others a backdrops for horses.

Nowadays many are covered in grafitti.

Lucky Nina. This guy seems real classy!

Wonderful set....Pill boxes just seem to blend into the background unnoticed....and as you say there are quite a few left for us to preserve.
