Pillbox, Cocklehole Road, Sutton Bridge

Summary:
A brickclad pillbox and possible searchlight unit, at Cocklehole Road, Sutton Bridge.

SUTTON BRIDGE, SOUTH HOLLAND, LINCOLNSHIRE

Description:
A brickclad pillbox at Cocklehole Road, Sutton Bridge. The pillbox was reportedly attached to a searchlight unit. {1}

The pillbox was still extant in March 2010, when it was photographed as part of the Rapid Landscape Assessment for a proposed wind farm cable route. The structure is brick-clad, in the hexagonal, type 22 form. Dating to the Second World War, it possibly formed part of the defences for the nearly airfield. {2}{3}

The pillbox formed part of the Second World War Coastal Crust and was built of concrete with a brick facing, with a loop over a low entry. {4}{5}
